When opened, my refurbished close top drum was bare. I just picked this up last week. I just used a weed burner to strip the exterior paint.

I'm not sure if it would have held up to 400°F drum temperature. Besides, it wasn't my color.
Also, in stripping the exterior paint with the burner it also sanitized the interior of the drum with its high heat and burned off whatever residue they used, I hope.

What will you do about the jagged edge from cutting the lid? It looks a little dangerous to me.
