I just removed an old bathroom vanity, sink, and plumbing back to the wall in a house built in 1964. The existing connection from the wall was a brass piece that threaded into the stubout. The existing drainpipe was chrome and was sweated in to the brass piece. I am not going to sweat any new pieces; I only want to thread them in or glue if necessary. The piping is 1 1/2".

The plumbing guy at the store said I could do the following setup shown in the attached pictures. My questions are:

1. Does this seem correct? It seems that there should be some type of double-threaded trap adapter rather than having to glue two pieces together (as shown in the last picture).

2. Is it OK to screw the pvc adapter into the metal pipe or does the adapter have to be metal as well? If so, what is the piece called? Link? Part number?

Thank you for your help!

-Rob
