Kitchen Faucet Replacement STG Style


Saw Superseal's post on replacing a faucet, and now I have faucet replacement envy. So did this one on a condo we'll be selling.

Yeah #1, the kitchen is really small and the really pro way to hang a sink is to slather some construction adhesive all around and slap that puppy down.

Yeah #2, ain't no way a human body AND wrenches will fit in that cabinet, so the sink HAD to come out. Blech.

Much solvent, scraping and shining later, it be back in A1 shape.

After surgical debris removal, the rest of the transplant went without a hitch.

Meguir's PlastX puts the slight buff back on everything to make it do that sparkle thang...

Yup, that works. But why didn't you replace the countertop, too? Is that the only one in the kitchen? (probably not, right?)

Because its the same laminate on the opposite wall on two other separate counter surfaces, AND in the bathroom.

Also, I'm a cheapskate - the counters are flawless and new ones won't increase perceived value.

Yes it's a remote supply. Neat huh?

Tomorrow I'll jiggy up the bracket to hold the reservoir.

Physically impossible for me AND tools to be in that cab at the same time. Dogs play lay down & rollover - not this old man.
