    As long as it seals I wouldn't worry about 2mm.

  • Maybe i'm lucky, but mine has always just lined up. I do torque the band bolts so I know they are adjusted very close to the same level. 
    I loosen both bands, position the hinge close to center and then start to snug the bands together. SWMBO helps by applying some downward pressure (I no longer refer to her assistance as being dead weight, thank you very much) The bands just seem to find their own sweet spot and are tightened together to specified 120 inch pounds.

    If we're talking millimeters... I wouldn't worry about it. What's scratched?

    Depending on how bad it is...

    Take the band's off, sand, prime and paint with hi temp spray paint

    Mask off the area well and do the repairs with the egg assembled.

    3 millimeters.. Wouldn't bother unless it's keeping you up nights. YouTube Bge assembly.

    If just a small scratch, what about just dabbing some high-temp paint on with a qtip or something?
