I called around a few places to see if I could get it sandblasted (the red sealer), nobody does it local. Has anyone tried aircraft coating remover?

Is there a powder coating outfit near you? Almost all do their own sand blasting as the two go hand in hand. Body shops too.

To get the lid to fit you have to rivit or weld a ring on the inside of the drum.
