Stick to the Brethren! They'll help you out.
I went to Urban Ore in Berkeley yesterday and they had some closed top honey drums for 15 bucks, I think. They said they have a regular supplier and sometimes they get open top drums. I work near there, so I'm just going to keep looking every few days at lunchtime. I noticed they had a few busted up Webers so I'm hoping to stumble onto some parts I can use. Good place.
