Tom, the key is that the old laminate must still be
tightly bonded (tap around with a hard object to
check for voids. As Jack says, sand with 80 grit.
The other trick is to use a solvent based adhesive
in this application rather than a water based one
(take care to provide sufficient ventilation, turn
off appliances and gas, and where a respirator).
For an excellent book on the subject of laminate
countertops, including this approach, pickup a copy
of Making Plastic-Laminate Countertops (title may not
not be exact, but it's close) by Herrick Kimball. You
can order it from Taunton Press ( Go
to BOOKS and do a search; it'll pop up.
