Squeeze a 1/4-inch thick bead of silicone caulk inside the recessed channel on the underside of the rim all around the sink. Turn the sink on and carefully lower it into the hole in the cabinet. Spread PVC pipe primer and cement on the inner and outer edges of the newly cut straight pipe. Attach one end to the open part of the trap. Remove the cap from the drain and press the opposite end of the tube into the main drain.
