Aluminum Siding in Contact
I am installing a metal box for my fixture....if any part of that touches the aluminum siding I have, does that pose an unsafe condition? (I tried to seperate the two as much as I could)

the only problem that could happen was the contact of dissimilar metals leave a little space run a bead of silicone to seperate and seal then make sure you use the gasket with the fixture
oh yeah make sure the box is grounded
