I drilled into the other drum I had today and it went much smoother than the second one. I have been collecting parts and making the coal baskets, laid out the lid vents, made a kettle lid ring and put handles together. I used an Irwin step drill and some Harbor Freight bits.

Drilled 3 intake vents and 4 holes for the coal basket bolts

Laid the coal basket on the bolts and marked the upper and lower level grate bolts

I cut the kettle flange to fit on the drum to use the Weber lid securely

Drum lid with Weber handle and hanger underneath

Coal basket and small insert for short cooks

All it needs now is a paint job and the drum dolly. As it stands I must admit it is one Ugly Drum Smoker!
