    I am trying to find a trip lever plate for my tub. The lever does not go up and down but side to side. It also has the overflow in the underside of the plate. Where can I find a replacement for what I have? It works but I want a new/shiny one since we are renovating the bathroom. THANK YOU!

    If it's solid, take it to a plating company have them blast it and re-coat it with nickel or chrome.

    We are leaving the tub as is. It's in excellent shape.

    It is American Standard, but it is the one part that is not shown in my book, so I can't give you a part number, assuming it is still available.
