How to remove tub/shower/sink/toilet unit in 64 Overlander

Any good advise out there on removing the bathroom unit (tub, shower, sink and toilet) in a 64 Overlander? This thing is put together like a jigsaw puzzle. Have removed all visible screws and rivets but the sink is still securely attached to the back wall of the bathroom.

Take it slowly. Lots of pics to remember how to put it back together.
Use a slim putty knife to slide between the sink and wall to check for fasteners. Sometimes even after drilling rivet head off the shaft still keeps a bite on what it was holding. Silicone or similar may be holding it as well.
Shower drain pipe may have to be cut underneath the floor. Mine was solvent welded to the tail piece so that was the only way it was coming out.

If I recall correctly there were "hidden rivets" behind the sink. I think this is where Airstream may have assembled the sink to the tub before attaching to the wall. My sink faucet was badly corroded and would not come apart. I cut the ABS shower drain pipe and pulled the tub out with trap attached. I had the belly pans down first. My toilet was badly corroded. I had to cut the bolts from the flange, cut the copper piping, and lift it out. I had removed the console already.

Mine is a 66, and may be different than your 64. I know the 65s and 66s are similar.

Thank you for your input. We are learning the value of the Forum as a resource! Sure enough there were some elusive rivets holding the durned thing in, but we were successful in removing it without damaging any of the unit. The bigger challenge was getting it out the door of the A/S! A little squeezing and a lot of Norwegian ingenuity got it done.

We have a lot of that Norwegian stuff here in Minnesota too. My favorite is "goot n tite" for the torque spec on trailer wheel lug nuts.
