|Awaiting front panels|
|Fan in place, but no chimney cover|
Well, the backsplash dude arrived and it turns out I was really wrong -- in great part because we are using small (1" square) glass tiles, the tiles must go on the wall before the hood fan and chimney. So the fan had to come off the wall, then the wall could get tiled, then the fan has to be re-mounted. All that work installing the thing on Saturday was for naught.

|The gap at the back|
|It starts at the cabinet on the left, but is gone by the pencil mark|
|Gap filled by a wedge of wood. Tile sitting on that wood.|
So one of my contractor dudes came by, and voila, in 30 minutes, the gap was filled and you can barely tell we had a gap at all.
