[REQUEST] Installing laminate countertops over plywood, question about installing miter bolts.

Hello All. Was hoping to get some insight on this install. My wife and I plan on tossing some laminate countertops that are pre mitered and require the miter bolt installation in the kitchen and every tutorial I see shows the cabinets open at the top, providing easy access to the miter bolts. The problem is I have one miter joint on the countertops that just so happen to have a lazy susan underneath where the miter would go that is anchored to the plywood. The entire countertop is tile and has what looks like plywood, then hardi backer, then mud and tile.

So my thought was to install the countertops on top of the plywood and just cut access holes for the miter bolts. This would take away the need for clearance build up strips and give me a lot of area to shoot screws through the bottom.

I guess the question would be, is this feasible? Would I possibly run into issues mating the miter evenly? Sorry for the book, just not quite sure how to word. Anythibg you Google on this talks of actually making countertops.
