Windshield cowl gasket... Is this right?

I just installed a omix ada 12302.04 cowl seal. Everything seems fine except how it sits on the exterior bottom (overhangs the cowl and doesn't sit flush). Is this correct? My OEM one did not have near that over hang. I really don't see how it can be installed any other way.

It will settle in over time with the sun hitting it. Biggest problem I had was aligning the spreader bars after install since the gasket was so thick
