I bet the dodger was measured with the topping lift on and not with the sail up. Is there a way you could bend the upper arch of the dodger so it clears with the sail on/topping lift off? If it's just rubbing now, you should be able to just flatten the profile of the tubing a bit so you don't have to re-cut the dodger which looks like a nice job otherwise.
