Toilets gone, but what about this flange?

I removed the toilet out of my 1975 Airstream Argosy 26' today (I'm gutting the Argosy before we renovate it). The toilet was a cheap plastic one, and I didn't want to keep it, so I ended up cutting the toilet away and cutting off the bolts off that were keeping it fastened to the board on top of the black tank.

Now, I'm not sure how I get the remaning flange/gasket off so I can remove the board that is on the black tank:

Anyone have any suggestions?

The flange unscrews from the tank. You will need to use a spanner wrench. You can make one from a piece of flat stock about a foot long with a couple of pins (bolts) sticking out. The thread is right hand.

Thanks Twinkie!

Thanks so much for sharing that Twinkie!

With all the wax on the flange(at least I'm hoping thats wax, or some type of 'sealant') I would have never guessed I needed a spanner wrench. I really appreciate the help
