Question Am I dead in the water?

I'm remodeling my bathroom and don't know what to do about tiling the wall that has the baseboard heater on it. I'm using natural slate. It's about 3/8 ths inches thick and won't fit behind the baseboard heater. The baseboard heater is nailed to the wall. Even if I pull the nails out to move the baseboard heater away from the wall I can't do it because the hole in the floor where the copper pipe comes from the basement is very tight to the pipe. Is there another way of dealing with this or do I have to change my plans?

So the main hold up is the pipe?

you could CAREFULLY chisel the hole in the floor to make the pipe move away enough to get the tile in, naturally this would require shutting off/unhooking the pipe . Pipe should move 3/8" without replumbing anything.

notching around the entire heater isn't really plausable. Doable, but not the best way of going about it IMHO.
