Default Removing stock heat shields

I'm blacking out my '12 CCT and found that the heat shields at the header connection don't appear to be removable. I could get the shields just before slip-on point off; they are held on with screw clamps.

Can someone let me know how I should go about ceramic coating the shields if I can't get them off?

They ARE connected via some kind of clamp, but I can't tell if there is anything inside the heat shield which I could use to reattach it after I cut off those clamps.

there is a little tab in there that the clamp goes through, so yes cut the band and use hose clamps to put back on

yes there are slots on the inside of the heat shield to slid a hose clamp threw. You can get stainless hose clamps at hardware store cheaper then auto store.
Use a side cutters to cut off the old ones if you have no power grinder

That's good to know. They are so tight on the pipe that I was afraid they were soldered onto the heat shield.

Success! My Dremel was not working to my satisfaction, so I start chiseling at the clamp crimps. All but two of them snapped without too much beating. I gave the Dremel another try and the last two gave way. Seven 1 3/4 x 3/8" hose clamps and they're ready for reassembly once they get ceramic coated.

I just blacked mine out too and those clamps suck. I cut mine off with a pair of end cutting nippers then just used regular hose clamps.
