I've been in the electronics industry for 11 years and will tell you that the electronic security systems are largely ignored by the public and a bad guy in the know can disable it in seconds especially in the older cars as they are harder to hide.

I'd stick with good blaster and don't park in trouble spots.

This thread may make history as one of the best off topics ever!

I also would love to make a hood release, but I don't want a trunk release, I'm fine with using the key. Is there a kit with just the hood?

One good thing might be to install a deadman switch somewhere no one will look like under the seat not under the dash. That way if they get in the car your stereo will be gone but the car will be there.

I agree that no one even looks when a car alarm goes off, I know I don't.

A friend of mine use to live in Newark NJ back in the 60's and 70's.He ran some badass street cars.He could actually leave his car running in the middle of the street and Nobody would touch it.Why because if you did, a big ole Doberman popped its head up and you went a running when you saw it angry,LOL...

I plan on using a remote battery disconnect kit on my car. Summit, Flaming River, Moroso, etc make them. Same idea as on a rig. You turn a switch and it kills the power to the battery. I want to hide one somewhere on my car and turn it off if I go on holidays or leave the car for long periods of time. I'm debating about making a false panel somewhere so it's not very easy to find. http://store.summitracing.com/egnse...sults=false&Ntk=KeywordSearch&DDS=1&N=700+115 Alarms are okay, but if the guy really wants you're car, he'll find a way around it. I spend $3k on an alarm years ago, it had a pager, zones, blah blah blah. Ripped it all out. Won't put another one in.

If you do an alarm, do a pager alarm, with no siren or light outputs, if hide/integrate your ignition kill well enough it will give you plenty of time to catch them in the act :devil:. They won't be in a hurry because they don't know there is an alarm, or, if they can't get the car to start, they will move on to an easier target. Personally, I love the thought of catching them myself :devil::devil::devil:

That can also backfire if you're not careful though. A few years ago there was a guy in the city where I live who had a pager on his alarm for the exact reason. One night the pager went off, he looked outside and saw a couple guys trying to get inside his car. When he got to the door to 'catch them in the act', they were waiting for him. Somehow they saw or heard him coming outside and instead of running, they attacked him quite badly. They didn't know they guy and it wasn't a targeted hit. Just wrong place, wrong time for the car owner.
