Hey Biggs98
Here is how I did one of my tall lids from a donor. This one is 6" tall and I took the lid and cut the center out with a sawzall using the lip as the guide, so it was a nice clean circle cut.

I made the mistake of trying to force the drum piece to fit down into the lid piece. I thought I could make some cuts and get a flush fit, not to be. You can see the vertical cuts in the pics. Next time I will just set the lid piece on the lid piece straight and weld it like that. Works great, nice and tight.
