I have been thinking of this stuff as the world begins to see my project on the road.  I didn't know about the hydraulic lock.  That could be great for the 4-speed car.

Has anyone set up an electronic lock on the starter cable?  I installed one of those PMGA (or whatever they are called) newer tech starters.  There is a small wire coming off the starter that I am unsure what it does.  I thought it would be cool if that were some kind of disarm lead that would make the starter not engage.

Anyway, I am looking for options too.

That wire is used to energize the solenoid on top of the starter.

This is for a newer type solenoid, but the connections are the same. This setup keeps the "I" terminal on the solenoid connected to your coil.

Hydraulic Locks
I have one under the dash and another under the hood.
Mine are manual valve. I step on the break and turn the knob closed which keeps the pressure on the breaks.
When I'm at a hotel or car show I'll close the one under the hood also. that way if they find the one under the dash,
the breaks are still locked. I also have a gps tracker that has a prepaid sim card that works with google maps to show
the cars location.
$40 for the hydraulic locks
$100 for the gps tracker

I put too much effort into the car to not want to save it.

Which GPS tracker are you using? Is it connected to the car battery?
I have the ITracker I.
Yes, it is connected to 12v but once it losses power it has a 5 day internal battery life.
No monthly fee and it has an enteral microphone you can toggle on or off.
Mine was bought several years ago and the new ones are much better.
I like it.

I remember seeing an article awhile back about harvesting a hood latch mechanism w/cable from an F-150, or 'early-'80s T-bird, Cougar, LTD, et al.  Of course, it won't you win any concourse shows... but then again "technically," neither would your car being stolen.   whistling

I'll have to dig it up later - as I'm at work now.

This was the security on my J Code Vert when she first arrived from the USA...I suspect it was put on during its tenure in Tuscon, AZ and just left on when the son moved the car up to his barn in Spokane, WA. Yes, it was chain link under the sheathing.). Maybe that is why the ram air and air filter canister set up was still complete on the car Smile

No sir, that one requires a monthly fee.
This is the one I have.

Good ideas by everybody.
I like the non traditional or mainstream approach.
hard to beat a system quickly if you have never seen it. In the End i know its only one flat bed from being taken but i dont intend on leaving it anywhere long enough for that to happen.
