    I didn't know you were supposed to remove the panel to replace these...

    I replaced mine many years ago and used stainless sheet screws as well. Removing the rivets out leaves a of it portion inside the roof which will rattle around until it finds a spot to rest. I opted to drill the rivets out, I was confident I wouldn't go beyond it and damage the stainless. If you're worried about the bar, you can remove the gas strut and prop the door further open to make it easier/better angle to get to the rivets.

    Another tip, place a piece of copper tubing over the drill bit leaving just the tip of the drill exposed to act as a stop so you don't touch the door skin. Try to drill the rivet out at an angle removing just the head of the rivet.
