Question for those of you that have taken the exhaust heat shield off

I'm in the middle of removing my exhaust heat shield so I can wrap the header to reduce heat. I've got the right side part of the shield off, but am having trouble removing the left side. All bolts on the shield are removed (it moves freely) and the cable ties holding the wiring to the shield have been cut. Nothing is attached to the shield.

There simple does not seem to be room to pull the shield out. Please tell me the rear subframe does not need to be removed to get the shield out.

Looking for any advice on this!

Fyi, the tank did have to come off and the top rear subframe bolts had to be loosened and the bottom two subframe bolts removed in order to be able to lift the subframe up enough to get the clearance to get the left exhaust shield out. There is no other way.
