Thanks guys.

What do you think about the joint between the last tile and the stainless ramp? I filled the underside of the ramp with thinset so in theory it shouldnt move but in case it does I was debating using sealant not grout there. Opinions?Name:  IMG_4144.jpg

The pic is too pixelated to see. If you’re referring to a metal profile ramp, it needs to be as stiff as the tile install and I’d mortar it in.

I am of the same mind as Davy but if you were dead set on getting some on the ground first I have something similar to this that I would use https://www.homedepot.com/p/5-1-2-in...-628/302723902

You need thinset underneath the profile to ensure it has 100% support to handle the weight. Note, if you don't clean the SS profile off fairly quickly, it might get stained by the thinset on the exposed portions.
