I am installing a new vanity / top combo in a bathroom I am in the process of remodeling. I leveled and roughed the base and placed the vanity top (provided with the base) on to check the fit and align it with the p-trap.
Everything was fine following the Instructions until I got to step 5 (installing the top). While attempting to center the top on the base and get it flush (ish) against the wall, I noticed that the top does not appear to "sit" correctly on the base, a subject about which the instructions are noticeably silent. The front and back of the vanity top appear fine, but the sides of the top that would normally touch the base appear to extend too far to the sides of the base for the silicone adhesive to be useful.
Should I use shims (or some other technique) to bring the base in contact with the top or is everything here in order and I'm over thinking it? Could this be a defect?
I purchased the vanity from Home Depot. I can add additional images or information if needed.
