Hey guys, I'm new and just created an account. I'm currently working on renovating a bathroom in my house. Have not had a probably with anything yet, but am now on the bathroom sink. I removed the old drain setup because it didn't work with the faucet I purchased. I am unsure if I can connect PVC drain piping to the fitting that is in the wall. I believe it is brass (?) and is 1-3/8" inner diameter. The galvanized ring was threaded onto this piece. Can I thread anything onto this older connection? Picture should hopefully show up below. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks!
Here is the original set-up that I took off. It was galvanized, but there was a gap between the top of the P trap and the bottom of the plastic faucet drain...
I would just reattach this old stuff, but it is heavily rusted. Near the end, the pipe is cracked and beginning to flake off...

Reason: fixed pictures2
If the drain was set to low in the wall you could have just bought a tail piece extention and cut it to the lenght you needed.
Your just missing a washer that's 1-1/4 on the inside to reduce the threaded adapter in the wall down.
Any standard trap should work if you just go buy the male on one end and female slip tail piece.
You would be better off with PVC drains then metal.
