Can anyone offer tips, tricks or advice on installing Rutland gasket with the Permatex Ultra Copper?

I have read the Naked Whiz installation instructions on installing the Rutland gasket with the supplied cement, and i also read the write up of Frank Smith on how to apply just the Permatex Ultra Copper gasket. I guess I assumed that using Permatex Ultra Copper gasket applied in a similar way as the Rutland cement, but, that does not appear to be the case. The permatex is actually a gasket applied with a jig to get a 'cushion' for the dome to sit on. When applied like that, does the Rutland gasket still get applied the same way (bunched up)? Or, do you not need the thickness of the permatex shown on the site when using permatex with the Rutland? Just wondered if anyone could offer some 'how to', suggestions or tips of what worked well for them, when using the Permatex in combination with the Rutland? Thanks in advance.

    What size egg are you planning to apply the Rutland gasket on as it makes a difference. Do not mix and match the two sets of instructions you mentioned. Seeing that I have supplied well over 800 Rutland gaskets to folks over the past 11 years I might have some "street cred" OK? BTW if you go back and re-read TNW write up you'll see those were a condensed version of my instructions.

    Ron, my apologies for not giving you the credit on TNW's web site. Yes, I did notice that the instructions was your write up. I am installing on a large egg. Wanting to use the Permatex Ultra Copper and the Rutland, as both come highly recommended here.

    No problem about the credit...what I meant was I have supplied gaskets for years for no personal gain.  BTW my other detailed reply was sent in reply to yours! ...let's see if it makes it's way through the DM maze here! Ron

    When I put my Rutland on in December, I just did a thin zig zag bead using the Permatex.   It has worked flawlessly, I couldn't be happier.  One tube was enough to do my large BGE.
