Got the car ready for winter after not having been driven for like 8 months to a year. Everything was fine, drove it to work to see whats up. On the way home I heard something start scraping. Turns out the heat shield rusted off and was dragging. I had a snow shovel in the trunk so I bent it out of the way. Then I hit some bumps and it started scraping again.

So I took the shovel and hammered at it until it fell off. Took like a minute, guess it was pretty rusted.

Question is, is there anything else I should look at that might fall off. The body heat shield seemed to be shaking when I was hammering it off.

Pic for reference of body heatshield from google.
