original shutoff valve


My bathroom has a single handle faucet that I want to change out,
inside the sink cabinet is 2 shutoff valves coming out to 3/8 outlet (i think compression type) pointing up. It is plumbed with small hard copper lines from the valve up to the faucet.

The faucet clamps by 2 toggle bolt angle anchors. I plan to loosen these first. Then will there be any difficulty undoing the compression fitting from the shut off valves? everything look slightly oxidized

The new faucet will use a 3/8" inlet to 1/2" outlet teflon lined, braided hose up to the faucet.

You have to turn the water off first, then you loosen the supply tubes THEN you can take the faucet off

Is a flare nut wrench a good idea if I have one? vs adjustables

You may be able to use a little heat to loosen them up if they give you a hard time.
Try not to use a crescent wrench on the brass, tubing wrenches being ideal; or in this case, since you're scrapping the tube anyway, cut the tube and use a 6 point box wrench or socket.
