It looks good with the rusted out sleeper look, not normally my style but if it wasn't planned then I think you should keep it like that :)

48V is the limit of not having to legally* do any specific sealing or covering. 48V won't kill you but it does tingle and will still make a mess of any metal that touches the terminals. And of course you're going to want to keep water, dirt, possums etc out.

*the rule is 48V but presumably your pack is 48V nominal and it's final voltage is over that after charging. So technically you should be doing more (stickers /labels/IPxx, etc) to make it hazardous voltage compliant but that's on paper and we are in the real world and if anyone asks it's '48V' not 'fully charged it's 53V'.


On a side note, this picture

Looks like it was taken on the set of Thomas the Tank Engine

Thanks for your input Brendon. I'll make some better covers for the battery pack and look into some labels.
