Although it is tricky to balance, my drum runs perfect with the Weber lid; I hope the Arctic works as well.
If your weber lid sits on the rim of your drum the Arctic should also. So if you were to do my mod of 4 screws and furnace rope gasket, after mashing the outer rim somewhat you will be good to go. Look at this pic:

The screws angle in so it "makes" it a good fit. Here is another shot:

You can kinda see the mashed outer rim, not much, just enough to make a good seal when the furnace rope is on it and the screws keep the lid in place solid as a rock.

Hope this helps.............
