Unless you cut the bottom out like I did why do you need an ash pan? It will be a pain to get out without spilling ashes along the sides.
On the intake nipples I don't think it matters much, I just made sure that the conduit nut had a couple of turns to tighten down. I know some set the charcoal basket on the intakes, but I did not.
Love to see the build after your done.
