The heat shield around the exhaust piping is there so that there is minimal heat radiating to the bottom part of the chassis. I don't know what type of material is covering the metal chassis, but the heat shields are there in order to protect that area from being "burnt to a crisp" (for lack of a better term). You can try removing the shields, but beware of what I told you if you smell something burning.
