Finally listened to those of you who suggested a system that could regulate the coal and installed it today after work. I Had The jack so used that to move the plates. I want to try to hook a cheap 110v winch motor to the jack so I can open and close it fron inside. Also added steps, a smart man would have done that in the beginning of the project.

Got the thing completely assembled today, just have to get some different tires on it. Also got it put in the lean too where it is going to live. The pick of the window is the back of the lean to an auger will move the coal to the window and gravity should hopefully drop into the hopper though a piece of pvc. I will have to find a new place to store the wood splitter now or just convince the wife to swap out the wood srove in the house for coal also.

You should coat the inside with paint, roof coating, or something. Otherwise the bottom will rot out. If mine, I would paint the inside to separate the metals. Them pop rivet, or glue the aluminum down. Or cover the bottom with luan plywood. Then staple tyvek house wrap to it for slipperiness. You get the idea. If you do nothing, it will rot out if used as storage bin. After numerous repairs, I finally covered the bottom of mine with aluminum. No more rot. You did paint!!! Guess I should have read ALL the replies before posting my own... :)
