    Seeing how that looks like the bottom of a tuna fish can I'd say it's not good
    But then I'm sure you didn't need me to tell you that

    Are those ring shank or spiral twist nails? If they are spiral twist, they spin free electrons which can set up a negative force field causing the electricity to slow down at this point. The rubber backing of the duct tape may act as a damper to limit the effects of the spiral twist nails. I recommend applying exterior paint on the can bottom as a rust preventative measure.

    See, now, that is the kind of in-depth information that makes IN so valuable to me.

    I'd like to be there to just watch some of this stuff being "installed".

    For increased safety you should probably write "UL" on it in sharpie. Otherwise everything looks good.
