Need advice on granite install on island with downdraft

Amy J
last month

We replaced out cooktop and downdraft on our island and the granite installers are telling us we need to remove downdraft to install granite. Our contractors are saying if they remove downdraft there will be no way to reinstall it after granite goes in. So i came up with a possible solution (see my crazy pics below) that would minimize seams and not require downdraft removal. NOW the granite installers are saying that the “red” section of my template may be too fragile and they won’t install unless we take responsibility if the granite breaks. UGH! Any other ideas out there?
