Battery box ideas

I have two series 27 batteries and I would like to put them in some sort of enclosure to protect the batteries from the elements. Only problem is that these batteries are wedged right in between of the frame. Does anybody have any ideas of what to buy and or build. Any help/guidance greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to charging batteries in parallel. I would switch your batteries so you could hook the positive to one and the negative to the other.

Thank you! Oddly enough the picture I attached was the way that the dealership wired them up. Ironically enough both of my batteries failed less than a year. Got my replacements today and installed them the same way. I will reword it so that there will be a balanced load. Thanks again.
