I was thinking...(and yes, I am having a new convertor installed as we speak)...The whole idea of thieves being able to steal the cat convertor is they have access to the underside...my idea?
Why not this? A couple of 3 foot aluminum (or steel) angle brackets, say 3 inches welded/screwed to the frame and 4 or 5 inches hanging down...PLUS one shorter piece for the front and back of the car.. building a 'cage'..or effectively lowering the space underneath the car..Let's say, level with the exhaust pipe or something..after all the main reason they are targeting elements (apart from the elements inside that make them valuable) is Elements have decent clearance...I don't go off-roading in Miami Beach so I don't see how the 'lowering' will affect driving....Cheaper...and less $$ to have it welded/screwed in place...THEN the morons will not have any choice but to move onto the next car (sorry..next car owner) What does everyone think about that? I welcome any comments!!
