I have removed some of those shieldings with a small caliper. The trick
is to use the round holes and to seize the metal there. Then rotate the
caliper and pull off stripes of metal like with a can opener. You just
have to be careful on the soldered edges, since you can accidentially
pull some copper off the top layer. With a little bit of wiggling the
shielding will come off nicely.
