For $32 (plus shipping and tax) for a new lid I would wait till a Weber came up on Craig's list. As @timberjet mentioned, you get a lot of parts from a donor Weber. I got mine for $50 and used the lid, cooking grate, charcoal grate, and wheels. It would have cost me well over $50 to buy those parts individually. 

 

I cut my drum open with a 4" grinder. I cut the inside of the top lip so the lip stayed intact.

You could do that but I would get one with the bung holes. Then you have the perfect 3 inches of exhaust you will need and the plugs can be screwed back in when you shut it down. It really is the best way if you are using a flat stock lid. I think it would fit if you cut it like B said. You don't want to deform the lip because you will have air leaks.
