Dome Alignment and Dollar Bill Test

Hello all. So I recently replaced my gasket and my band on my egg. I have been fiddling with them off and on over the past few days and taking breaks as my frustration builds. At this point I’m probably 5-6+ hours in of fiddling and so far I can either get proper dome alignment with no underbite/overbite along with a poor seal at a few different positions. Or I can get a great deal with about a 1/4” under/overbite. It’s an XL and I’m not sure if having a poor seal in those few spots is a deal breaker. I can’t see a visible gap but a dollar bill pulls fairly easily through those spots. Any advice appreciated!
