Gasket fail..please help

Merry Christmas to all I replaced my first LBGE gasket yesterday using the standard replacement gasket. I scraped using straight edge razor, brushed with a wire brush and acetone. Applied high heat spray adhesive. My lid does have a 1/8 inch underbite. After 30 minutes the back rim is loose and bunching up on the top. What did I do wrong and how can I fix it? I appreciate any help.

    FWIW, the adhesive may not have had enough time to set up, particularly if the Egg was in a cool environment.
