Well greeneggers, hello!

For those newer, I've been a follower/occasional commenter/grateful questioner over many years, mostly from about 2003 to 2012 or so. This was and, I hope, still is a great forum for green egger newbies to participate in and learn from.

Anyhow, I still have and use my Large Green Egg relatively regularly, mostly cooking steaks which are delicious of course. Once in a while I've cooked a brisket, which was my most recent cook. Turned out quite good.

Also, recently it became apparent the my eggnest was sinking fast toward a pile of rust so I built a new table to house my egg. Hopefully I'll post a picture here soon. But the construction process raised a question which is the reason for this post. To get the egg into the hole in the table top and down into a table nest, I had to dismantle the egg and reassemble it in the table. Upon reassembling and cooking the brisket, I noticed a large gap in the lid on the right side. I replaced the gasket with a new one which nearly closed it up but the top is offset about a 1/4" and cocked up on the right side. OMG.

So, can I get any suggestions about adjusting the hoops and hinge that I have (remember it's about 16 years old), please? Or am I obligated to purchase a new hinge/band mechanism?
