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.
