Default custom metal motor plate bad for motor??

i have a tb-02 and got a thin piece of metal and cutomed it to fit against the motor and then to the plastic motor mount. Is it bad since its metal and it attracts to the motor and its on the motor? I doubt this would be acceptable at tcs right? I have pics but dont know how to post them

kool, hmmm.. Well do you know the difference between aluminum and steel? Like how it looks? Send me pics or post them.
Add them to your pics on your comp, then look at the bottum of where you type the message, click browse, got to my pics, and click on the pic you want.
Hope this helps
