Bonding new Formica over old in a kitchen

We have a 1950s kitchen that has a worn Formica countertop. We plan to do a complete remodel of the kitchen, but Id like to push that project off a couple of years. In order to appease the wife, I would need to resurface the countertops.

Does anyone know if sheet of new Formica can be bonded right over the old Formica, or does the old one have to be pealed off first? The edges would not be a problem since they are chrome/stainless steel, and I think I can simply pop them off and pop them right back on after the new Formica is down.

I am not sure at this point if it would be possible to peal the old Formica off. I would, if that was the case, have to consider replacing the wood underneath also.

If I can bond new over old, does anyone know of a good procedure?

Thanks in advance for your advice - TomR
