New Tub / Tub Surround

I am removing my old acrylic tub/ceramic tile, and installing an AquaGlass (brand name), acrylic tub and shower surround.

I have removed the old ceramic tile/green board, leaving the rest of the drywall (about 12") up to the ceiling....kinda hoping the new surroung will negate me having to replace that remaining 12" of drywall surrounding the walls...

So after all the the question.

I have the screws out of the acrylic tub, and have removed the overflow cover. I am looking for advice on how to remove the overflow connection, and the drain connection...all of which are PVC.

Two screwdrivers crossing each other, turn two left.


Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.
