Removing rear carpet for BR Racing roll bar install

I'm trying to remove the carpet in the rear footwells (the piece begins halfway under front seats and extends to the back seat) because I don't want to cut the carpet to install a bolt-in roll bar which bolts to the floorpan: (look at the bottom of the front seats to see where rear carpet section begins as well as where the roll bar mounts)

Has anyone had experience with this? I found a TIS document describing the removal, but for some reason it says that it involves removing the handbrake lever? I don't see how that matters, but to me it looks like it might require removal of central console?

Ive included the links to the TIS docs below:

How'd you make out? I have been looking at this setup for awhile now. When I do get it, and install it, I was going to just install over the carpet... putting small holes In the carpet for the bolts/hardware
