Waterproof housing (similar to Dahua zoom) for DIY LPR?

I'm looking for a housing for my DIY 50mm Sony IMX291 LPR. I couldn't find anything with close specs, and I frankly got tired of fighting it, so for 20$ from Ali and another 25$ for a fast optic, I now have a lense capable of reading license plates to the edge of my circle (and a bit beyond). How it works at night, I don't know yet.
I still need to get a POE module to hook it up properly, but I do need to find some good housings. I was hoping to come across some busted Dahua units but no-dice there.

Ali's got a couple, but they're still 20$ and of questionable waterproofness. I ordered them anyways.

Thanks for the tips on the lense- it's still not as sharp as I'd like, but it's pretty decent. I may try and hook up one of my old camera lenses or find a fast 50mm f1.8 from ebay. footprint would be the same, just severely cropped.

Thanks kindly

Dang! That's slick. Probably way out of my league, too. I'll have to search for those. Nice bosch camera though - I tore a dead one apart awhile back, have the chips waiting to be burned and dies looked at for fun. I wonder what's on them.
