i fitted a gps tracker to my landcruiser. if they can get it going which is very unlikely i can cut the fuel supply but dailing the unit. ive put a cut off valve in the fuel line. if they tow it the unit will send me a text with the lats + longs + a map.. ive also got and alarm fitted. biggest question is should i call the cops or my 4wd mates first.

just come up with two good ideas, 1. the theives are gona get what they want eventually so why not engrave your name and phone number into each part or engrave a code that you'll remember. 2. on the idea to provent someone nicking your 4by, what about a wheel clamp. i saw a guy in the UK clamp his car on an onstreet car park so that the parking inspectors would think that his car had been already clamped. when he came back (way way over the two hour limit) he just unclamped his car and left. now besides the obvious genius for free parking, a wheel clamp would prevent a theif from nicking your 4wd at least.....

Hi all, I work for super cheap auto. We had guy last year walk out the door with a set of speakers. our manger called our big bloke on the pa, so he went to get the little man & walked him straight inside. the stupid thing was he said one of your team members said I could try them! his way is get dumb full time employee of can't stop stiring out chick made his girlfriend keep him busy. My answer why can't the cops just take behind the shed and belt ***** out them it solve that problem
Cheers anthony

I put a old beer fridge out on the verge with a "free to a good home" sign on it!
It was still there more than 6 weeks and neighbors complaining.
I changed the sign to read "Beer Fridge $50" and it was stolen the same night! :lol:
So now for my car I have a cardboard sign for the front dash says - "Cars rooted - free to a good home..." & no one will touch it!
I guess its human nature... people only want to steal something someone else values... if you don't value it, then no one else will want to steal it!. :rolleyes:

Now I'm not sure if you've heard of this stuff or not and it may not stop someone ripping you off but your parts can at least be easily identified by the police. It is basically a paint on "Data dot" with a unique code you can register the number nationally. Can only be seen under UV light. Great for bikes as well.

Need to get out more

Its excellent stuff, but is a little pricey but that also depends what you use it on and what is the value of the items.

Great for vehicles, power tools fridges and other larger items - wouldn't use it on "everything"

They now market it in smaller lots that what i originally purchased

My can has lasted over 10 years , done about 25 major items and never had to find out if the process works although the big stickers on the vehicles are getting a bit tatty and the little ones have now faded almost to invisibility :lol:

A mate spent 6 months advertising his oldmans wooden boat for free, needed a complete rebuild on EVERYTHING!
After all that time he was sent the money to get it removed from the front lawn.....
Then sold it for $1500 after 2wks advertising with a price :lol: WIN WIN

Had my Led lightbar stolen today while i was at a funeral. Absolute pieces of scum *****. They used a hacksaw and cut straight through the bolts and scratched my bullbar along the way. The nuts were really hard to get undone so i guess thats why they cut it. Make sure you guys use hi tensile bolts.
