Before fixing the new unit into place, do as much plumbing work to it as possible, first, fix the waste outlet. Ceramic wash basins usually have an overflow build in, and a slotted waste outlet has to be used. To seal this to the basin surface, bed it in using plumbing mastic. Position the waste outlet so that the slot in it coincides with the slot from the overflow in the basin and hold in it place with the washers and back-nut supplied. Do not overtighten or the basin may crack. Remove any excess mastic.
The last step in installing the silk undermount stainless steel is to install the fittings. If you have confirmed the wing nuts are in place, stick masking tape to the back of the countertop. Mark the position to provide for the faucet after which you install the fittings.
Finally, fit the unit into place, making sure that it is secure before connecting the water and waste pipes. A pedestal basin can be bedded into its pedestal with plumbing mastic; some basins have a special fixing for securing the basin and pedestal together. As usual, ensure that there is no strain on any of the pipes or connections - if there is, refit or rebend the pipes as necessary.
