Dino, If you can feel it, you can remove it. I did the same thing on my 64 Safari. I think home depot or Lowe's have swivel angled ratcheting end wrenches, cheep. I had mine out so it was easier for me to do. While it was out I had all of my pieces gel-coated white. However you can take them out in place. You just need to be a bit of a contortionist with the right tool. Take the nuts off the back of both faucets. Done. LOL, if you think getting the old ones off is bad wait until you put the new ones on. Just Kidding.

Smile DONE finally

Thanks to you guys for all of the advice and my daughter who can fit into tiny spaces. We were able to get all of the copper tubing out and detached. She was able to cut the copper at back of the shower faucet and then slip a box wrench on the back and take them off. She was also able to get the cold water detached at the back of the kitchen sink. Now we have reinforced braided connectors on all faucets and ready to attache to PEX.
We also bought a new water pump since we were redoing the plumbing.
Thanks again guys.

Batman, we had to cut off our bench just like that when we did a new toilet in our 64 Tradewind. Would love to see what this looks like finished. We are trying to decide how to cover up the side of the tub and the plumbing lines that run behind the toilet and we need some inspiration!

Thanks in advance. Feel free to PM me, i know this thread is super old, but I'm digging hard for ideas!
