Default Rear Panel Install

Hey Everybody,
I am the proud owner of a new rear panel finisher after the old speaker covers melted in the direct sunlight before I got tinted. Here is the dilemma, after removing the rear lower seat and attempting to remove the bolts from the seat belt harness, the bolt on the rear drivers side stripped. I was able to get the rear passenger side bolt out but the middle bolt is almost inaccessible. On the new finish panel, should I just make small slits in the panel to fish the seat belts through? or remove the entire back seat and attempt to remove the center bolt and possibly the stripped bolt and proceed with the install?
Thanks as always.

Remove it and do it right. It will cause more of a headache down the line. I would also remove the panel and get it tinted and then reinstall. Makes it easier for the tint installer.

Do it right. Since the bolt is stripped go to a hardware store and buy bolt extractors they should come out real easy

Thanks for the tips Latinmaxima and Kenny. I went to my local garage on Friday and had the mechanic remove the stripped bolt. I am back in the game to get the new rear panel installed. Just need a second pair of hands to help remove the back seat. Thanks again

Update..Finally had the time this past weekend to install the rear finish panel. It took 2 hours as I took my time removing all the bolts and the entire rear seat for easy access. Re-installation was fairly easy. The Max looks as good as new.
