Replacing galvanized tub / shower supply lines...

...and toilet, and sink.
(The bathroom has a crawlspace under it where all the supply lines come from)
As far as the shower goes, is the only way to do this by cutting into the wall behind the shower? And if so, how far do I need to cut? Just around the valve, or do I need to cut all the way up to the shower head?

The toilet I can probably handle, just one line through the floor.

The sink lines come out of the wall, not the floor, so what do I need to do here? Same as the shower, or is it possible to just remove what's there.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Open wall all the way to the shower head, at sink drill new holes through the bottom of the cabinet near the back side, and stub up the new lines there. You should be able to remove the old existing water lines at the shower valve.
