Help please..not enough thread left to attach water supply line


Can anyone please give me any suggestions on attaching the water supply line to a new Moen faucet. I replaced my old vanity top with a new one & also am adding a new faucet & I have run into a snag. There is not enough thread left to attach the water supply line after screwing on the wing nut as tight as possible. The new vanity top is quite thick & once the wing nut that holds the faucet is tightened, there is not enough thread left to tighten the water line enough so it won't leak. Any suggestions please? Thanks

I went to Home Depot & they had the copper nut but not the square or round washer. I also tried a plumbing supply store for the washer but no luck there either. Anyway, I bought the nuts & pulled the faucet forward as far as possible so the faucets threaded pipes we touching the forward end of the drilled holes & then screwed the nuts on. The nuts have just enough material to catch the edge of the vanity top & I was able to tighten them without the faucet slipping backwards & so far the faucet seems to be holding solid. That gave me enough thread left over to screw the water supply line on & get a good seal. Hopefully it holds & thanks for the tip!
