I can't seem to figure out what the three ring shape wire connector top is either, like Gage987, I've tried google, please help!

You could use a Marette (twist on wire connector) to hold these together

Lucky me I live in Seattle. Once I get my belt sander back, my 40 or so cans are going to get their protective layer removed and tossed in the rain for a few weeks.

Oh, and if any of you are going to PAX, I might have drinkable QuanTum...

Love it except for that its not rusted, but great job anyway. The rust just gives it the good look, lol.

Grrr,I Know Its Best To Go To The Nuka Cola Bottling Company And Get All The Quantum You Want Even Cherry And The Other 7 Flavors,But Be Sure You Have Strong Weapons,ammo And Alot Of Stimpacks

Nice Instructable, but i'm pretty sure that the pull pin is on the opposite side so that the holes in the top form a tall acute triangle. Although it looks like you should leave in the nail/nob thingy in the top, and if you could maybe you should sand away part of the can and spray vinegar on it so it rusts or spray paint it. But nice job on the detail.
