First thing to do is make sure yo have enough anti freeze in the radiator, once yo know yo have that you can drive the car.

secondly the problem could be a bad radiator fan motor which does not come on when it is supossed to, as long as the wind is blowing against the radiator it will not over heat so again check the radiatro fan motor and the fan relay.

Check for other loose heat shields.
The shield you removed would allow more noise to enter the cabin too.
