    use 100% silicone only. don't take risks with other mixes.

    how it handles on your fingers, and cleans up, is not a factor to be taken in consideration, as your stone is not going to be thrown away and another one put in place if for any reason you don't like how the new product reacts to the stone.

    Also FWIW it is known that latex-silicones are not good enough for wet areas like showers -- and this is a sink rim, so it will get standing water, which you do not want to start rotting the latex.

    I appreciate all the help, as today I test fitted my manipulated "Elkay" clips and they are going to work great! Got all the sides nice and tight and flush ready to mount. I will take back the Alex2 on another run to home depot tomorrow and get the 100% silicone.

    Since I have to remount the drain baskets and the garbage disposal, should I stay with the plumbers putty on those, or clean them up and use the silicone on those as well?
