View Full Version : Goldish lining in uds, is this bad?

10-06-2015, 02:54 PM
Since I moved and sold my last uds it's time for a new one. Some place told me they had unlined barrels so I went to take a look. Of course they were all banged up AND lined with yellow or red liner. I did find one acceptable barrel but it has a goldish liner and it is a little rusty on the inside. Have you ever seen this before? I know it came with honey from India.

Race fuel drums come unlined. Look for a shop that uses race gas and have them save you one.

+1 on the unlined drum. Those liners are a pain to get out.

Get a quote for sandblasting and powder-coating. If under $100, build your drum with the liner in place, then go get both the inside and outside sandblasted and have the outside powder-coated. Liner problem solved and a much better looking/longer lasting finish on the outside of your drum.

Sandblast and powder coat is the way to go if u can't find one with no liner

Those drums make for a spectacular first burn!

For me it was a slight challenge but nothing that the wire brush angle grinder and mineral spirits wouldn't fix.

I'm glad I used my drum I did because i like it's character, all these drums have their own personality and if you like it then use it.

Thanks for the advice. I put a nice fire in there tonight but it is too dark to see the results. I've taken off the yellow lining in two barrels and didn't enjoy either one. Hopefully this gold stuff burned right off. It definitely didn't seem as think as the other liners.
