Default Control Panel Backplate - Galvanized Zinc OK?

Hello, as I'm finishing my brutus 10 and building a control panel I just realized that my control panel box (gray plastic type) doesn't have a backplate. So I went to Lowes and grabbed a couple small galvanized zinc square plates from the electrical box section.

Here's exactly what I got.

Will this work? I've read that most people are using aluminum, so i just wanted to make sure before i started building this.

Thanks!

Jamey

Yes it will work, aluminum is just easier to work with.
