I have no idea where you got the impression you need 4 trap adaptors

all you need is 2 trap adapters

and 2 flanged tail pieces you may or may not need....you will not know that till you put it back together

I photoshopped what I think the drains/sink would look like with your suggestion of cutting at the blue line (like you illustrated) and adding a new trap adapter.

See attached pic .... am I correct??

Just wanted to post that I installed my new sink and faucet using Frodo's advice and everything works! Thanks Frodo and everyone else for your advise.
