I've installed a new tub surround in a 1948 duplex. As a result, the flange that covers the stem and packing nut will no longer attach properly.
I've included a photo of the faucet handles before the new tub surround was installed. The problem is the new surround is thicker, and the threaded piece that secures the pyramid flange(trim piece) isn't long enough to reach the threads on the packing nut.
Does anyone have any suggestions about where I might obtain one of those trim screws that's a little longer? If I can't, what are my options for extending the pipe/stem out of the wall about 1/4" more?
Thanks for the help.
