Very good! Just make sure you wash down the inner sides well.

Thank you everyone,

I've built many things in my life, but yesterday when I stood back to look at my progress I couldn't help but think "this is the most beautiful thing you have ever made"...The look and feel, the cabinetry(which is still in my head) it all fits...

now the bad news...I HAVE A LEAK...just a small one,lower left corner,...In all my excitement I did rush to fill it...I cut out that section and resealed...Think I'll wait till wednesday night to test again

yes you can, but it shows any and every rub mark... matte is better...easier to maintain
