Replace stub-out for bathroom sink


How I replace the stub-out (I think that's what it's called) for a bathroom sink? It would work as-is, but I want to put in a pedestal for this remodel, so I want all the plumbing to look pretty, and it sticks out too far to get a reasonably sized decorative flange over it. I'll attach a photo of what it looks like right now. Does it just unscrew?



I guess I could add a picture to show the whole thing. I just finished replacing the old valves.

Can not tell much from that picture, the pipes to nasty to see much.
The green means it could be copper or brass, or bronze.
That back walls so messed up it's to need to be redone anyway so open it up and see if you can see threads.

It's the bit that has that green color that needs to be replaced. It looks like it maybe threads into the piece behind it. This house is 50 years old if that's any clue. I'm not sure why it sticks out so far but the "drywall by hammer" work there makes me think it was changed by DIYer sometime in the past. It used to be all hidden inside a cabinet.

EDIT: I took a wire brush to it, and that piece is copper. Does that mean it's likely soldered in there?

EDIT2: At least it's copper colored. I guess that could be brass? Sorry for the dumb questions, but I'm just learning how to do this stuff.

Thanks, I'll take a look at that for the weekend. One issue is it looks like someone put some vice grips or something on it sometime in the last half century and it's a bit bent out of round. I still need to learn how to solder things on as I've only used the torch to remove the old valves. At least with the drain stuff, a bad solder won't flood the house.

Thanks for the help everyone. The funny thing is when I was all done, you can't even see the plumbing I worked to make look nice.
