Does this surface have to be completely clean or will a couple of good hot burns finish it up? I would say all the line is about 98% removed.
I'd get it all out, but that's just me....hence that is why I had mine sandblasted after one attempt at burning the liner out.

Having said that, I think you'll be fine. Start with a butt and get the drum seasoned with some smokey pig fat and everything will be alright.
