Penguin II with cups on Argosy - gasket too thick?

So I've finally gotten around to installing my penguin ii on my 1972 Argosy 22. I'm using the drip cups so I went ahead and installed the second layer of gasket material to the existing one on the unit, but after torquing up the screws it still seems like the unit is too far off of the roof line. Am I doing something wrong? I did add some extra gasket pieces to the sides of the unit to make it more stable and to account for the extreme rounding of be roofline with these older rigs. Could that be causing the issue?

Maybe the extra strips are a problem. Lewster always just used 2 gaskets and compressed to the thickness of one.
