When the gap is 0.42 the shoe doesn't rub at all, I can clearly spot an airgap between the shoe and the bell with my bare eye.
To stop the clutch from slipping I would suggest starting out with 0mm of preload (after setting the gap of course) and go from there. It shouldn't slip with this setting, if it does there is a different problem, i.e. wrong measurement, little mistake during assembly.
If the clutch doesn't slip start giving it more preload until it starts slipping again, then back off the preload nut a quarter of a turn and your clutch should be perfect.
