I've started the disassemble process with the 66 Globetrotter project. Trying to keep the exterior in tact until the weather breaks but want to get a jump on things. Bathroom is where I'm starting first.
This model has the one-piece rear bath with sink on left, shower middle and toilet right. I've gotten all the obvious rivets out of the lower bath. Also found the hidden ones under the sink.
Was able to get all of the mounting screws along the front of the shower off as well as getting the shower drain unhooked.
Everything is loose enough to wiggle except something hidden behind the toilet side.
It's either some hidden rivets behind the small black tank or the tank is strapped down (tank wiggles enough that I don't think it's that though).
My question is - how can I free this up? The cast iron flange for the toilet is in tact and I don't see a way to remove it without trashing the tank. I'd need to do that to get at any remaining rivets back there. Is there a trick to either removing that or to getting at whatever is still hanging on without dropping the belly? I really don't want to do that until Spring, but I do want to get this out.
If I'm not able to get it this weekend I'm going to have to resort to destruction of the lower bath next weekend. We're doing a custom interior rather than re-using it, but I thought I'd try to preserve it in case someone could use it.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
