Nested USB boards... Answered

I am working on a DIY thumb drive.  I want one Flash drive sticking out each end of this casing.
The two circuit boards will be nearly touching, nested, one on top of the other in opposite directions.  Should I be concerned, should I put something between them?

Cool, if this project gets off the ground, I'll be sure to post.

If nothing will short you will be fine. Insulate your contacts if needed but if the metal casing of the connectors is touching that isn't a problem.
