Default WIP UDS UK style

Hi, This is my Work in Progress (WIP) for my UDS.
Struggle to find parts in the UK, and kind of on stop until I can find a basket :-
anyway, here are some Pics :-

I managed to pick up an unlined drum off ebay for about 25 delivered.
its an open drum with the lid, the plan is to weld the black dome to the original lid for a snug fit. The dome Lid, is from a Kettle BBQ that Tesco sells.
Its actually bottom part of the BBQ, but a better fit than the actual lid that came with it. BBQ Charcoal Grates are 15 here, so I figured paying 35 for a kettle BBQ will give me quite a few other parts I can also use.

The Airvent on drum is kind of neat, should help me control smoke exit - the top part slides off as well, giving me about a 4" opening. Hope its enough exit venting.

A shot of the interior & the unlined drum. Really struggled to find the right nipples & threads, here in the UK for a decent price. Ended up getting 1" bushes with a 3/4" opening & some screw in bolts to control air flow.

Another shot of the inside, Ive only really put the charcoal grate in so far.
