sink doesn't line up with old p-trap?

i am replacing a bathroom cabinet. due to some remodeling ideas we want to do, the new cabinet has to be shifted about 1 1/2 inches to the right. because of this, the sink will not align with the existing p-trap. questions... can the p-trap plumbing be realigned with the new sink position? will this be a problem? how much can a sink drain be offset from the p-trap and still be able to do a good connection?

As long as the vanity sink base covers the drain pipe in the wall or floor (to hide it), you can plumb from the sink tailpiece and trap over to it.
Make it up, but don't tighten any of the fittings until you have it all swiveled around as necessary and connected.You may need a 1.5" drain pipe-to-1.25" trap assembly adapter at the wall.
You can hand-tighten the slip nuts of PVC white plastic drain assemblies, but if you use chromed brass, you will need channel-lock pliers or a pipe wrench to tighten them up.
Good Luck!
