    If the enclosure projects as far through that metal as it should, there should not be a problem. After all, the enclosure IS (supposed to be anyway) GROUNDED, and the cover properly mounted to the enclosure is also grounded. And I would want that metal siding grounded too.

    Not all that uncommon to see a distribution panel / load center mounted to a metal surfaced wall. Like Jerry said as long as the metal on the wall is bonded to the effective ground fault path it should not be a problem.
