By insulator, do you mean the ceramic?
If so, I'm pretty confident I have gotten it all out since the top piece (in the first photo) was the first piece that came out. Then I used compressed air to remove any bits out while the bottom piece (in the first photo) was still in. Finally, I removed the bottom piece (in the first photo) with a magnet tool.

Yeah, I put some anti-seize before installation.

On another note, I thought with NGK's (at least genuine ones) you shouldn't put anti-seize.
