PREPARE THE ROOM - First it is good to gather in the center of the room the furniture and cover with nylon sheets, fixing them with adhesive tape. Other sheets will be used to cover the rest of the floor. The same must be done by covering with tape sockets, fixtures and any other point of the room do not want to whitewash. All this, of course, to avoid long and exhausting work of final cleaning.

I've never heard of a 3-piece 4"

Widespread bathroom sink faucet. Not impossible, but must be impractical regarding cleaning and care. I didn't look up model #'s but seems fairly easy to connect valves to spout w/same size tubing of any length. Many times std 7/16" chrome plated brass supply tubing works using original nuts and ferruls and possibly bent w/bending tools to fit like some upper-end 3 piece faucets are designed. 7/16" supply tubing above is also std pro supply tubing from angle stop to valves properly bent and beaded w/captive washer and nut each end so nuts can't possibly be pulled off ends of tubing. Plastic or extremely thin corrugated brass supply tubing is crap in my opinion

    They are nice real brass fixtures but damaged from incorrect cleaning products over the years. I would like to update my master bathroom but buying 2 new sink fixtures plus shower and tub is not in my budget! Thanks!

    • Paint is a bad idea. you might consider having them re-plated or use some stripper to remove all of the old finish (most brass is coated with lacquer) polish them up and recoat them with lacquer.
