Just a note...the upper left side in the photo still has holes along the perimeter. Could be your Z is still too high.

The soap worked! I washed the sheet and dialed in in closer and the result was bang on. Thanks for the help!

When you print this how long are you letting your bed heat up before starting the print. I had issues where some areas of the bed printed better than others and Prusa sent me a new bed and Y carriage but I saw the same issues. I found by letting the bed heat up for about 5 minutes before the print gave me a better (but no perfect) first layer across the bed. I still have random areas which are higher or lower with no explanation to determine why.

I believe you. preheating seems to be key.
thanks,
