Some people cut off the lip and others bolt or weld a ring of thin metal inside the top of the drum and sticking above the lip maybe 1/8" or 1/4 inch for the Weber top to rest on. That may need to be hammered to get a tight fit fit when you put on the top. Make sense?
Yep, makes sense. And I have already thought about it. If that would be the case I would cut off the lip of the bottom portion of my kettle, bolt and then seal it with high temp sealant.
Hopefully its a direct fit though
