converting existing sprinkler to drip irrigation system

We (being WC of course) are converting the existing sprinkler system to a drip irrigation system. This weekend we ran into a little snag when a quick "twist out one part and twist in the replacement part" turned into a little project.
The previous owner who installed the system glued one of the fittings in place! Argh! WC had to cut out and replace the entire junction.
But the new 6-way drip junction is now in place!

Now I can replace the rudbekia!
