Hi all! My wife and I are trying to remove our old two-piece fiberglass tub. All steps have gone well, except for the spigot. I have removed the decorative portion by turning counter-clockwise. This has left me with a brass pipe sticking approx. six inches into the tub. I can't see much behind the tub wall, but it looks like it might be threaded in to the tub water supply pipe (as opposed to soldered, I suppose).
My question - how do I remove this without messing something up? I tried to turn the spigot, but it started to bend.
Can I cut it off flush with the tub and solder on an extension when I put in the new tub? Is that a silly question?
