Default Drum clean up question

I've got my drum and will hopefully have all my parts early next week (waiting on a lid). So now I have some questions on clean up of the drum.

My drum housed anti-freeze. The drum is unlined and VERY clean!!! There is a small spot of rust-like residue in the bottom of the barrel (you can wipe it clean with a wet rag) and the outside is still very nicely painted and dent free. My plan is to wash out the drum with some simple green a couple of times, then drill all my holes before using a weed burner to remove the paint from the outside. Does anyone see anything wrong with this method?

I've bought some high heat paint. What about primer? I've seen it done both ways. I never looked for high heat primer though. Does such a thing exist?
