I'm in the process of renovating our 73 Argosy. It's not exactly modernized...more like new-retro.

Aqua Boomerang Formica (Sadly, they discontinued this one about 4 years ago)

You do not have to pull the cabinets. There are screws to the wall under the range and a handful of screws under the front edge of the counter. Also 3 on the backside under the oven.

We have a 70 31ft that we laminated directly over the top of the old green laminate. Done correctly, it lasted over 13 years. Last spring we used a mosaic tile over the top of that with awesome results, trimmed in aluminum angle.

When we first re laminated, we did pull the counter off the base cabinets to do the work in the garage, when we tiled we just left everything together and got after it. Sorry this is the best pic I have at the time.

this may be a dumb question but did you cut the space for the oven or did you have it done by someone else?

That is beautiful, too bad it is discontinued.

Let's play, looks amazing and so spacious. There are so many decorating choices, tough to choose. I have no counter space, so not much of an issue.

In my 1978 Avion Model M the original countertops were bad. I found a piece of corian cut it down to size. Scrap pice was $75.00. Cheaper than formica and plywood. Did bath and kitchen. Stainless backsplash to replace the old formica.

That looks great. You are a lot better at cutting aluminum sheeting then I am. Looks awesome. We are looking for Corian counters as well. Great find. I have granite for the house like that. I guess its a good time to check out Habitat. So the small sink was already in it? Thats amazing.

I pulled the counter top and laminated in garage.

Bought a sheet of laminate from Habitat Restore for $25. No need to pull cabinet.

More pictures in my photo gallery.

Nice score! I just got a quote for a 72" Corian countertop for our kitchen cabinet....$900. I'll be going with a different product.
