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...

Frank

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.
