Ditch the slip nut fittings and go with standard PVC fittings and trap. You build it to fit the space with 45 degree turn out of the wall toward the down spout and then adjust the trap to fit the new angle.

I'd only use a 45 PVC cement ell and adapter out of the wall. You should then be able to the slip fittings. Slip fittings allow you to clean the trap easily. Slip fittings are also a lot easier then trying to build a trap out of cement fittings.

Is there no way to do it with what ive got and adding to it? It is a double vanity and the other fit perfectly.

Yes there is, but it may not be to code for your area. You use the picture on the left and swing the traps to meet at the correct angle.

There are 2 ways.

No-Hub coupler to threads coming from wall. Follow that with a 45 degree "Street" elbow and a female trap adapter. (picture shows 45 regular elbow, get the street elbow to save you one less glue connection)

Second way is a slip tube 45 degree elbow. You will cut trap arm going to wall in half and insert elbow. I would prefer the no-hub over slip elbow.

space

Are you guys taking into account the fact that there is a horizontal difference of about 3-4 inches at least (take a look at the picture i posted initially). thats my main problem. sorry i'm a novice and trying to do this the easiest way i can.

Yes, I understand.
You need to move trap to the left.
See my previous picture of the white 45 slip elbow.

You will come out of wall with a short piece of PVC into the 45.
You will then insert the trap arm (or an extension if needed, then trap arm)

This moves the trap to the left. To get it to align (it needs to be aligned perfectly) you will adjust the lengths of the trap arm and short piece coming from wall.

If you need to adjust height, you can do that by cutting the extension piece you show and/or the sink tailpiece.

Coming out of the wall is a threaded trap adapter...

Your best to get a 1 1/2 female adapter, tape the threads with teflon tape and screw it on. Then out of the female adapter glue in a st 45, and another trap adapter to that...

Like Handyone shows below but hard piped..

Brian you should not use a no hub on threaded ends..

Yeah, my bad. Your advice of the female adapter is perfect. That's why you get the big bucks.

so this seems simple enough, yet i'm still exactly sure. show me a picture of the female adapter. and it seems like the way brians picture looks, the extension/where the curved trap piece is suppose to go is angled...i'm not quite sure i'm understanding how this will go together....

No other piping just one 45 street ell and two adapters that glue to it.
