Default 3 bolt exhaust flange needs repair

After looking i could not find a repair option to my problem on my 2000 extendend cab 3.0 and hope some one here my help with a part number and contact.

On the back side of the factory installed cat there is a 3 bolt flange mateing with the 3 bolt flange down stream with a flat gasket between the two. Bad leak between the two. Gasket has been replaced a couple of times but keeps blowing out. Both flanges are drilled to accept thrue bolt but the flanges are not flat enough for the gasket to seal. ( i have tried sealant wich will last a short time before blowing out with gasket ) is there something that i can put between the two flanges to make a good seal repair that will last?

If you can take it apart enough to grind/file its flatter.
Get or make some aluminum gaskets. They don't blow out

thanks baja
one side has a lip so fileing wont work. A thick aluminum gasket might work .would you know if there is one on the market?

Not sure the size but they are available. I think they have these in the "performance" shelf at oriellys and Autozone because they do carry mr.gasket stuff
