Thank you, Vovk Z
No matter what Material I‘ll end up using, I will not go the b-way.
It is probable that I‘ll shield the torpid (mu-metal seems hard to find though), but the torpid will stay clear of the upper side ��!

It also isn't an issue of the toroid being touched or not, it's an issue of a short winding around it. Make sure that you won't fasten the Mumetal shield with the same central bolt you're fastening the toroid with. Alternatively, you need to insulate the bolt either from the chassis or the Mumetal.
Best regards!
