I had my car previous car broken into..
My 89 Cavalier Z24. They stole all my stereo equipment.. I had an alpine cd HU ( forgot model number ).. alpine 400 watt that powered all speakers except sub.. which was powered by Mobile Authority A1000 1000 watt unit.. hooked up to a passive enclosure housing 2 10" subs. They also stole my wicked folding lounge chair that actually is a recliner with feet support..
.. now I have to stand when at Timmis..
. They gained access by punching out the lock on the driver side.. ( caught a bit of it on security camera.. sure enough.. they were driving mid early 90'* white civic.. more reason to hate them ). Couldn't claim insurance because I don't have receipt for this items since I got them thru a friend. So now even though I have the factory alarm system in my bonnie.. I want to eventually upgrade it with another alarm system that has it'* own separate back up battery so when they think of trying to kill the power at the battery end.. the alarm can still go off. I am also going to modify it with a UHF mobile radio I have laying around that pumps 30 watts transmit power, rig it up to the alarm and have a UHF pager programmed to the same frequency.. this will give me coverage of more than 15 KM.. and strong signals even through shopping malls, so when the alarm goes off.. so will the pager. I am also thinking about disecting a tazer.. put the seat as ground.. rig the steering wheel as hot positive side.. so if the alarm system isn't de-activated.. and someone trying to steal my car sits down and trouches the steering wheel... ZAPP !!!! Instant fried Ricer....and off goes the pager.. and out comes the bat !!!
