whether the 12 volt supply is grounded to the case of the charger,
simply keep the charger case from touching any metal parts of the car.
Do that and you should be alright.

I do the same thing with my MGs in my 3-door garage. The Jeep sits in
one stall, the MGB and my workbench in the far opposite stall, and the
J2, PB, and my TD in the center stall, side by side. In summer, the Jeep

door on one side and a 10 X 24 foot shop in the back. We have two 9 X 7
doors with a support in between and have put the 67 on car dollies and
it to one side of the garage against the wall. The Dodge Caravan is
into the other car bay, and the 79 is backed between the two in the
This gives us access to the driver's sides of both the Caravan and 79,
are mostly daily drivers. It seems to be working fine, other than the
inconvience of the moving the van first.
