Toilet is in

Last day of 2012 spent peering into a toilet bowl :-)  Well at least it's in now.  First job was to cut the holes for the pipes to fit through.
Then fit the elbows and tails with PTFE, fit the pipes onto the tails; made easier by heating in boiling water, and securing with two hose clips on each fitting.

I then had to come up with a cunning plan to secure the loo in place. As there is a drainage pipe in the front of the locker, visible in the picture above, I could not make the base plate fit all the way to the front of the locker.  Instead I made a block with a lip on it that I could screw and glue to the floor which the base could slip under. The aft end could then be held in place with another. removable, block which would hold the base both horizontally and vertically.
This is all best explained with a picture.
