    The Boss wants me to seal the sides and top of the pan against the WC cabinet. Obviously I will seal around the base but I think sides and top will look rubbish.
    What do others think?

    White silicon and just fill in any gaps etc

    What is the largest gap size, see some that are way out from the cabinet panel and they do look carp when silicone is applied.

    Never had one more than 5/8 mm that said. I have been told I have been lucky.

    My gaps are pretty small but down the sides at least the ceramic curves in towards the WC cabinet so that my Fugi won't help.
    However, I'd best give it a go for the sake of domestic harmony!
    Thanks for the input.

    Just use the 90 profile to fill in the ceramic curve

    Just came to that conclusion with a dry run.

    Silicon spray helps with anything if the tool grips too much

    Will agree with above 5-8mm line will look need and acts as strengthener.
