Kitchen sink plumbing


I want to swap out our double-basin kitchen sink for a large single basin. However, whenever I find how-to information it always assumes the two sinks from the double connect under the sink and travel to the wall via a single pipe. But in sink, each drain travels into the wall separately where I'd guess they connect into the single main drain. Any suggestions/pitfalls/links of converting such a configuration into a single drain (with disposer) would be appreciated. Pic attached.

In addition to the drainage, I'm wondering overall support from a single drain? Would the new one need to be a center drain? It would be a drop-in sink.

Permanently cap at the wall with a scd 40 pvs cap the drain you will not use. You will need to 45 the other drain to the center for a ptrap and disposal.

Any concerns about installing a single basin with the drain to the side, where existing drain to disposer is located? That would be my preference and then makes the job simpler, avoiding the 45.
