Has anyone used a tadpole gasket over the nomex gasket? Anything you have to change over the plans and what size did you use... thanks in advance

I built a Mini GF, one thing I would change is to move the drain hole back (centered between front and back) several inches. The drain valve is really close to the front caster. The nomex gaskets work well, just leave enough of a gap before you weld on your hinges.
