Dome alignment

If you are looking my egg, small on I put together today, the dome sits to the left and back.

Which nuts control that? I've loosened it and wiggled it and made it worse. Now it's just slightly off. Any suggestions?

    If you get bored sometime watch other videos that guy has on youtube. The Soft closing lid and the rotisserie one are pretty amazing. 

    When I flipped the hinge and changed gaskets on my small last week I just got all the nuts started but not tight, aligned the dome then tightened down the hinge and then the bands after. I watched so many videos and read posts I couldn't tell you who's info I ended up using, but they all were helpful.

    Yea the video was good but I don't wanna cut ad add washers. Don't think that's necessary yet. I put it together really fast so I could cook on it last night. I'm loosen everything and just try wiggling a little more.

    Yeah the shims is a little overkill but is one way of doing it. I spent one night watching all of those videos until I saw he converted a egg to gas then I quit and went to bed. Lots of free time indeed.
