UDS progress is slow but steady

I purchased two barrels over a month ago and I have been making slow but steady progress. Holes are drilled. Paint has been burned away. Have to grind and sand the more stubborn areas and the inside. Then comes mounting adjustable shelf brackets. I'm saving the charcoal basket builds for near the end of the process. I'd upload photos, but my phone says low memory is not allowing me to. Dang it.

Lol. Wire brush on a high speed drill will help your paint removal project along as good as anything else.

Feel free to msg with any questions/thoughts you might have on your build!

I have some brass brushes mounted on a drill. They take off the paint that has been loosened by the fire and the rust, but if the fire didn't weaken it the brushes aren't affecting it. I need to get a grinder and appropriate discs to take off the rest, especially on the lid which i purposely didn't burn. I was afraid the lids would warp.
