    one you make and put somewhere a thief won't look a good heavy duty switch in a main power line will work I prefer starter kills myself so in the event of failure on the road the car doesn't die (if you have a battery kill for instance you kill teh electrical circuit)

    I moved my battery to the trunk and installed a battery cut off switch in the trunk to kill all power. I did run a dedicated line from the c/d radio clock to keep it powered up for the clock and radio stations, I just have to manually shut it off when I leave. Have seen the switch in different hiding places on other cars too. The switch I got from local speed shop for a couple of bucks.

    Best anti-theft I have seen was posted in the BS topic not long ago, they installed an aftermartket steering wheel with a quick release hub. Take the steering wheel off and toss it in the truck, I cant see 2 many thiefts going for a car they cant turn.

    Best way is to hide the switches completely. Find a crack in the dash way up high that you can hide a switch behind and just poke it with your key before starting. A/C deletes or whatever. Build a little guide to keep the key from slipping off. Ive had killswitches connected to my heater controls (had to hold the defrost lever all the way to the right to engage the starter) and seen them connected to turn signals and other factory controls. They trick is to hide them so far up the dash the switch and wires cant be seen. Same goes for alarms and other antithefts. I install the alarm horn inside the car too. Makes it hard for the thief to work when he has a 120db+ horn under the dash going off [​IMG] .

    If a thief wants your car bad enough he will just tow you off. It takes literally 10 seconds to get a car on the back of a tow truck nowadays. They drive up to you backwards, the lift is hydraulic, and it clamps itself under the fron and rear of your tires, and it lifts the car, and the driver drives away.
