bathroom sink removal

I am having a time getting the sink out. I removed all the screws but it doesn't want to come out. Is there some hidden rivets or screws or is it possibly sealed into place? Its in a 65 Ambassasdor.

I don't know about a '65, but on my '68 the sink and counter are one piece and had the following:
Rivets along the front and side.
Screws underneath counter into medicine cabinet on top.
A metal bar screwed from skin to under counter top (rear left).
And gnarly white caulking that was near impossible to remove.

Hope this helps!

There are 6 hidden rivets along the back of the sink. I had to remove the tub to get at them. To remove the tub I had to remove both rear closets and the toilet. Progress,,,,,,,,,,, or should I say regress,,,,,,,,,,,not quite sure at this point. Oh well, I'm moving in some direction!

I was planning to fix a small crack in the basin. Now that every thing is removed I'll replace a couple of bad sections in the floor,(both vent pipes have leaked) inspect the frame and remove and inspect the holding tank. The list grows. This is why I don't know if I am actually making progress or if I am really regressing. Its all good.

That sounds awfully familiar. I ended up taking everything out of my trailer and it was good I did because of what was lurking. If you're interested check out my thread and you'll see a few pictures of what I found.

I don't know how to give a link but it's called, "My AS obsession: 1968 Tradewind..."

Good luck and post what you find.

I have seen your post. Very nice job. My wife isn't quite as handy with the power tools. I'll post some pixs from the interior as I go.
