cat heat shield

so, here is the deal.

the driver side trans side cat converter heat shield rattles like mad when it gets warmed bad i cant stand it. when i had my ranger and it did this, i cut off the heat shield and went on my merry way, because there was another shield between the cat and the body. not so here, if i cut it off it lets all the heat soak into the trans.

am i going to run into trouble if i cut this off, or should i cut it off and find out exactly where it is rattling and re-weld it?

Another answer would be to get a large stainless steel band clamp (worm style) and wrap the whole thing around the cat and heatsheild to prevent movement/rattling.
