11. now that is one cool sink! what an interesting shape--wow--

we have little cross braces around the corners of the cut out so I think it will be OK

I just spent an hour cleaning it up-- thanks to AZ hard water it had major build up of crusty crap around all the holes and the old faucet cover plate that was one of the rectangle all in one jobbies (like I'm replacing)

it had to be really clean cuz the new faucet is 4 distinct units.

now that it's all cleaned up, there is some wear and minor scratches on the enamel (as expected) but definitely OK for my needs and no chips anywhere, it's mostly just cosmetic dulling of the enamel surface.

it's gonna look great! my house in CA that I built with hubby #2 I installed a Kohler just like this one and I loved it!
