Sink Installation - Please help again!

Earlier I made a thread about this sink / countertop. I am just wondering now though, if this is possible to actually get installed myself without a plumber? I have taken some pictures as you guys can see, my new sink value doesn't align properly with the pipe below it. Does anyone of you guys know how to remedy this? Thank you in advance!

Cut out the trap and replace with a trap that is articulated which makes for easier alignment. It's less than $10 in parts and 1/2 hour worth of work... you can do it!

Are you refering to the drain line or the water lines to the faucet?

The drainline, the black pipe and the drain from the sink

If you cut the black pipe just after the trap and then install a new p-trap assembly with compression nuts then that will give you plenty of adjustments to connect to the sink drain. An extension tube will bring up to the sink drain.

I would add two 45's to the riser and stay with the larger pipe you have than drop it down to 1 1/2" od tubular.

I take it that you don't think this is the best way to do this. I would agree. Looks like the drain pipe is cocked at an angle.

Look at it this way, they could have paid a plummer and gotten the same results. - lol
