    i have fitted some vanity furniture and fitted the new toilet
    usually i would silicone seal it but the wc vanity has a removable front panel that can be slid upwards for maintenance so this leaves me with a dilemma how to i seal it to the cabinet to shut the 1-2mm gap so no liquids go down there. and still be able to remove the front panel.

    Doesn't work like that. Seal along the top edge and an inch down either side, use just enough to fill the gap. If the front panel does need to be removed any time in the future then just cut the silicone. It can always be remade afterwards.

    good idea

    shame they don`t make a seal that goes on the back of the toilet but a small bead of silicone to stop badly aiming pee`rs should do the job :LOL:
