Trying to Remove Kitchen Faucet

Hello everyone,

I have most of my old kitchen faucet removed, but I am now stuck and am hoping someone with more faucet experience than me can help.

The old faucet was a seperate spout, mixer and sprayer. The sprayer was easy to remove, but I have now gotten stuck on the spout and mixer.

The spout seems to have a nut underneath that will not move. I have tried everything to turn it. At this point, will I need to drill the nut out due to how badly rusted it is?

Moving onto the mixer. It does not appear to have a nut underneath holding it in place. I cant seem to figure out how it is held onto the sink. Here are pictures of the top and underneath of the mixer. Thoughts on how to get the mixer disconnected from this point?

Spray the nuts and threads with penetrating oil and clean with a wire brush.
These parts should come off fairly easy.
The smaller nut is installed using a deep socket, which was included in the package when originally installed. I indicated the nut with an arrow below.
You should be able to reach the nut with a small wrench. If not, you will need a deep well socket.

What tool have you tried using?
Tried a basin wrench?
100% sure your turning it in the right direction?
It can be confusing which direction to turn it working upside down like that.

If you wind up having to cut the nuts off, an oscillating multi tool with a metal cutting blade will work.

Just wanted to let everyone know I was finally able to get these off. The one piece came off pretty easily with a deep socket once I knew where it was. The other one had to be cut off to get it out.

Thanks for your help everyone.
