If given a choice i will go for ultra light brown or cream. Since using acrylic, dont go for conventional oyama colours. Thats my feel.

In the near future i may change to light brown.
Light brown or cream is the piece next to white? The piece with led light reflecting above ?

Yes thats the one. In fact they have other colours but i did not snap pics of those samples. I took this pic when the salesperson was keying in my purchase details. I wanted to snap a pic for future reference.

The gap is negligible. Dont worry about the gap. Just measure your entire base and minus 10mm. You need this 10mm for you to lift up your acrylic in future. With this, the issue of the silicon slope is eradicated.

Actually Shalabin mention he used suction sucker ? tie to a string and pull up easily . So if can pull up easily can dun minus the 10mm gap .

I think the suction sucker he referring is those big one selling in those hardware store ? Those that can stick on toilet tiles wall to hang towel that type ?
