M4 Y Pipe

Anybody ever cut the square heat shield mount off a m4 y pipe?

I was planning on doing no heat shields and that mount is kind of throwing me off. I have a shield on it now but I don't know how I feel about it.

If anyone has any pics of one cut off, please share!

I never put a heat shield on after I did all my pipes and looks good to me like that, even with the tab attached. I was going to cut it off, but you would have the welds there and discoloration unless you grind them and take a brill-ow pad to it to try and blend the stainless.. If you give this a try take some pictures and post your progress :corn :thumbup
I just left the tab there. Wish I would have gotten the titanium y-pipe and blued it out like my slip ons did
