Small leak w/Cat Delete

Installed my cat delete this evening and everything went fine except that I have a small leak at the front connection. Tried to manuever it around but no luck and nothing looks bent. Is there suppose to be a gasket between there? Would a little JB Weld take of this? It's barely noticable I'm just being a perfectionist. Thanks...

I was thinking about this after a few ****tails last night and I think because there was a little downward pressure from the exhaust hanging a little, thats why it didn't seal correctly. So I think what I'm going to do is loosing the bolts and with a floor jack slightly take the pressure of it and retorque 'em.

Mine had the gasket factory and there is one on it now that came with the delete pipe. No leaks.
