1/4" Aluminium Header Gasket DIY

Thanks 2 all.
I plan to fabricate a DIY header flange gasket from 1/4" Aluminium bar stock.
I bronze welded a layer of bronze on the primary tube mating surfaces then flat board sanded the bronze down to 180 grit.
I wonder if I should use paper gaskets or no gaskets on both sides of the DIY 1/4" Aluminium gasket?
