Tell me about the lip that you added.

I have a closed head drum that I am going to have to mod for a lid to fit.

Used a piece a 1"x1/8" aluminum stock, rolled it on my bender ta fit inside the drum, drilled an pop riveted it ta the top. Lid won't slide off the top a the drum now.

Used aluminum cause its easier ta roll an drill. More en strong enough fer holdin a lid inplace.

I trimmed the ends a the rivets off after mountin cause it does make gettin the racks in an out a tight fit, but ain't no big deal, better then havin the lid fallin off.
