370LE sighting

Recently visited my daughter and family in Hampton VA. While driving around town I caught a shine out of the corner of my eye. Went back to investigate and it turned out to be a 370LE. I asked the storage guy at the office if he'd mind me looking. The storage guy said he understood that it belong to the owner's father. Had been sitting in it's location for years. Looking thru driver window the dash was all taken off. Needed paint job on both upper side's.

370 Bathroom vanity

Romakdaddy,

I took a look under the cabinet and get what you're saying about the hamper liner. This is obviously not built as a typical modular cabinet box with back, bottom, and sides. I don't see any connection between that metal liner and the inboard facing of the vanity cabinet with attached hamper door, or to the bottom of the counter top. This would lead me to believe that the sequence of installation would have started with rough plumbing on the outside wall, then cabinet floor possibly with hamper liner already attached, then the vanity front and tambour doors, and finally the counter top to capture the tambour doors???

I also removed the top drawer from the bedroom cabinet, and don't see any fasteners that might have gone through that plywood wall into the vanity top, but you might want to double check that.

You've loosened the forward edge (to the right as you face it), the back edge behind the sink along the curbside wall, and also the immediately above the hamper door, and it still isn't loose? I'm sure you've disconnected the plumbing already. Are you certain that you haven't missed a screw? Is it possible that the top is being held in place by caulking? Have you tried clearing it out with a multitool?

I'm starting to think the factory hired wizards to install the bathroom vanities...lol I managed to remove the top and bottom screws on the inboard portion of the hamper and it comes away on one side but it still fastened to the wall
its loose on the sink end but is holding on for dear life on the other end...im stuck but not giving up...lol

Victory!!

Congratulations on finally sorting it out!

I never would have thought of there being a double wall in there. Thanks for the great pics. Somewhere down the line I have a date with that bedroom cabinet in order to fix the failed heating unit. Great information to have on hand. Keep up the good work.

Your "B-370 wallet bomber" cracks me up every time I see it.

Charly

Do you make a screwdriver for the Snap On distributor who never has one when he needs it most?
