replacing bathroom vanity/sink - drain question

I am replacing my bathroom vanity, sink and faucet. I got everything installed except for the drain.

The drain throat that came with the faucet is not long enough and the depth is wrong to reach the trap (i think that's the right terminology). The old drain and plumbing in the vanity was metal. So I need some sort of extension to connect the throat to the trap, or maybe even replace the trap?

Bath vanities usually use 1 1/4" drain lines, but can enlarge as they go into the wall to 1 1/2". I would definitely replace any metal drains with pvc. Too easy. If longer pieces are needed, you can find them at the plumbing supply or big box stores.

Specifically there is an extension tube that would lengthen the section coming off the drain assembly so that it would reach the trap.they come in 6 and 12 inch lengths and can be cut with a hacksaw if needed.
