Large print brim goes over skirt and peels up with petg

I have a pretty large print that I am trying to do, but when it does the skirt, the brim runs over it.  Then it peels up as the head hits.  I went through calibration and the calibration surfaces look fine.  Is there something else I need to do in order to get this to work?

If you're using a brim, you don't need a skirt. I'd disable the skirt. PETG does not require as much 1st layer squish as PLA. Have you tried raising Live-Z (making it less negative)? Raising it by 0.02-0.2mm can help with peeling up 1st layer PETG.

@bobstro

I tried not brim at all, and what I found was that parts wouldn't stick at all(it's a screwdriver holder) and the holes for the screwdrivers wouldn't adhere to the textured bed in some spots while they would in other areas.

If you need a brim and a draft shield (skirt) and the skirt clips the brim, increase the distance from object.

Well it still isn't working.  3 g-d damn hours with support and no closer to fixing the problem, and I can't even get a level print now.
