First of all, get the right drum, if it don't fit leave it, heres another thing about that, most open top drums fit perfectly when flipped over, the bottom of mine seals to perfection on my 30's and 55's
Hint, keep a lid in your car. i do.
I agree. We have found that open top drums have a very thick ring around the top. We take a closed drum, turn it over and cut the bottom out. When grinding it smooth we discovered that the metal is rolled over the bottom. Just pop it off and you gain quite a bit plus it is still reinforced. Not sure if you'll understand that.
