Front Heat Shield

A few months ago, when I replaced my muffler, I had the shop remove by passenger side shield as it was hanging by some threads... no problems since.

I was just replacing my front u-joints when I realized my front driver's side heat shield (from the exhaust manifold to the cats) was also barely hanging on. So I went all Willy Nilly and cut it out....

now I'm worried that maybe I shouldn't have. The fuel line is fairly close although it is wrapped in another heat shield... what else did I overlook?

Has anyone else removed this one?

I'd appreciate any opinions you may have.

Hey fellow member... Ford doesn't put shields on, or around things unless entirely nessesary... IMHO.

Press on regardless!
