Default Kill Switches

I'm finally to the point where I'm about to take my car out on the streets (after it being in the shop for a year). I've thrown on a decent looking body kit, lights, and pretty soon a turbo kit. Knowing my luck I'm sure someone would try to steal it. So........was thinking about making a kill switch. Anyone have some ideas (hiding it, nice ways to rig it up...etc)?

Thanks

This isn't exactly the same, but I put razor-wire all behind my head unit. Yea, they can steal it, but they will lose a finger or two.

My original plan is to use a bear trap, but everyone advised against it, saying it can go off during a bumpy ride and ---- things up nicely. Seemed like a great idea at the time, razor wire is better, just manage your cables, so they dont chafe the razors, if your wires will go bye bye.

Put a switch (with key if you're hardcore) under the seat that blocks the fuel pump / or ECU if you're speaking about theft of the car.

when i parked my car in th e bad neighborhoods... i would use that autolock thing that goes on the clutch... an alarm... unplug the ECU fuse, disable the fuel pump... but if someone really wants your car... they will take it with a tow truck... so always put the parking brake, and leave it in first gear... but if they really want your car... they will take it... but its nice to know it put up a fight... better have full coverage...

How about unplugging the battery?

Well, there are those hardcore people who will stop at nothing to get a car, so I tend to stick something in the tail pipe as well as take the battery out. I couldn't figure out why they throw handles on those things until now.
