Default UDS / Mini gauge steel questions and more?

I plan on making a UDS build and a MUDs build.
I'm trying to order directly from a factory that will provide me with new drums.

Question #1
I think I might be able to customize the thickness gauge of steel without a big price penalty.

For the 55 gallon drum they say:
Steel thicknesses range from 0.9mm to 1.2mm(can be customized).

For the 60L drum, they say:
Steel thicknesses range from 0.5mm to 0.8mm(can be customized).

Should I ask for a specific thickness for each of the drums?

Does it matter?

Question #2: I'm trying to make a MUD's and I'm wondering what the best option is for size. I've thought that the 60L would do but I'm not entirely sure. Here is the chart they give.

1 20L Open-Head Steel Pail 0.5~0.8 3263 2855 0.5~0.8 2803 4205

2 30(35)L Open-Head Steel Pail 0.5~0.8 3303 4405

3 50L Open-Head Steel Pail 0.5~0.8 3803 4505

4 55L Open-Head Steel Pail 0.5~0.8 3803 5605

5 60L Open-Head Steel Pail 0.5~0.8 3803 6005

6 70L Open-Head Steel Pail 0.5~0.8 3803 6455

7 85L Open-Head Steel Pail 0.5~0.8 4353 6005

8 100L Open-Head Steel Pail 0.5~0.8 4353 8205

9 120L Open-Head Steel Pail 0.5~0.8 4353 8305

Should I go for the 60 L or is there a better option for a MUDS?

(I've got a 12.4 inch Smokey Joe. It'd be cool if I could use the dome top for my MUDS)

Thanks in advance

PS - Is an ISO drum superior for a UDS build in some way?
