Looking for Brass Bathroom Sink Faucet w/ Shower Diverters

The "D-spud" (shower diverter connector) on my Bigfoot bathroom sink faucet will not stay in the "up" position. The model currently in my Bigfoot looks like this - Phoenix USA P4403-I 4" Chrome Exposed Diverter Lavatory Faucet : Amazon.com : Automotive

Showering with one hand holding the diverter in the "up" position is a challenge. I surfed the web for a higher quality replacement sick faucet made of brass. I spoke with manufactures (Phoenix, LaSalle-Bristol, etc.) and retailers (PPL, Tweetys...). Apparently, there isn't a RV sink faucet w/ a shower diverter (D-Spud) that is made of metal. They are all plastic with a metal-like finish.

MY OPTIONS:

1. Replace the plastic faucet with an expensive marine faucet from a yacht parts supplier (such as this Ambassador Trinidad faucet) that has a detachable combo faucet/shower head. Ambassador Trinidad Mini Combo or this one Scandvik Marine Inc. - Products


2. Modify. Found a couple of modifications that looked do-able with skill, effort, and time. (None of which I have in great quantity.)
Scavik modification:
RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Truck Campers: Shower fixture replacement in a BF10.4E

Home Depot modification:
RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Out with the old and in with the new (shower valve that is) l
Questions:
Does anyone out there is FGRV Land know of a quality replacement for the original equipment Phoenix bathroom sink faucet in my Bigfoot?

Has anyone in FGRV Land modified their OE bathroom sink faucet?
