I installed the full mat a few weeks ago and also replaced the handbrake cable, etc. The mat is sandwiched between the hand brake base and seat box, and I only cut 3 small holes for bolts and cable. All works great and look on the under side of mat, I recall it had only two/three designated (small) cut out holes/marks for the bolts/cable. I did use spacers under the seat rails.

I sandwiched the mat between the seat box and the parking brake bracket with loader bolts as well. Helps keep the mat tight on the seat box.

I've done it both ways as well, but I prefer to sandwich between the brake and the box. For the seats, I prefer to cutout the bolt holes and then use spacers between seat rails and the seatbox. For the spacers, I stacked 3 or 4 washers together.
