installing vessel sink drain?! (HELP!)
We're installing a vessel sink in our bathroom - so far we've successfully connected the faucet (no leaks!). However, we can't figure out the drain. It's an American Standard white vessel sink with an overflow. There are holes cut in the drain (for the overflow, obviously) - however, the sink came without instructions. :(

We've got a rubber washer/seal, a hard plastic ring, a drain with a long metal pipe, and a metal nut that holds it all together. We're puzzled. Where does the rubber seal go? Does it rest inside of the sink (between the two layers of porcelain?) or does it go underneath the countertop?

If anyone's installed these sinks (it's the three-in-one vessel sink from Home Depot), please send your advice our way.

Rubber washer should go on botton side of sink.

Listen you should use plumbers putty on the top of the sink. Roll it out in your hand like a snake then run it around top of the metal pipe before sitting into sink. When you tightened it down from underneath it will start to uzz out thats ok it is suppose to.
