    I've thought about this and researched it myself, but FYI, it can't be legal.

    Even if stun guns are legal in your area. You can't set boobytraps (like a shotgun in your window). Remember the guy who electrified his car in a locked garage some time ago? Or the guy in FL who did the same to his store, narrowly missed manslaughter and that requires someone to break in which is probably why he just slid by.

    Putting a hazard like that out in the open you'll be *****ed.

    Say someone touches your handle and dies (pacemaker for instance) or a child does it, you're going to jail.

    If you were to really do it, I'd put it somewhere inside the car. For instance, on mine, to get at whatever is in the doubledin, you have to reach under and inside the dash.

    It's the natural place to grip and can't be hit accidentily. Perfect place.

    BTW, here's another link on the subject.

    Porecting the outside using electircity is a problem. Iw as going to to this myself. hehe...love the legal. Anyways, theres gotta be a way to proect the inside. Honestly...i was going to be a bit more insidius. Maybe a contact neurotoxin that paralyzed the person's extermiity for a few minutes. I mean really...who continues to steal a car when they can't feel anything above thier elbow? Itching powerder and skin irritants, things that won' kill, they can't really prove without saying that "i tried to break into the car", things that would stop them in their tracks and make them reconsider. I mena, my firned has an immobilizer that works AFTER the car is started. If the car stops and kills the guy ro critically wounds him, r another person, apparently, the theif is liable.

    hmmm...how about a nice dose of knockout gas or nitrus oxide? Show me a state that bans laughing gas, i'll show you a state full of bad teeth

    I doubt any place would ban it, but stick strict licensing restrictions. You gotta be licensed to dispense it, probably.

    You can get nitrus without any problems. And a good thing is that ricers have made it very easy for us to install a nitrus tank in our cars

    Hmmmm.... but I see a problem with this. What if if alarm goes off when the garbage truck drives by and the windows and everything is locked. So you get in and what happens?

    Electric shock alarm system on a car is highly illegal.

    There iss no current law that law that prevents me from doing this here in the state of north carolina. And if i have to go out of town, or out of state, i can rent a car.

    it probably would...thats why im installing it in the door handles which are plastic, the the voltage is high enought to make it jump to the chasis of the car. The car chasis will NOT be energized as this may cause a grounding issue and render the system useless !!!

    Inside the car perhaps. I think I misread your original post. I thought you meant the outside handles. Big difference. Outside there's no way as there are any number of scenarios where someone could get hurt without trying to break into your car.

    Still, you might want to go one better than a cousin cop for interpreting legal standing. Not knocking your cousin, my brother's a cop, I often ask him questions on mods, but he's not a lawyer. There might be less well know laws that could snarl you. Also, you could still get sued if someone got hurt.

    The other thing is, unless your an engineer, and something goes wrong, you again, are probably *****ed. Like say you get shocked while driving and cause an accident.

    The last thing to think about is making sure you dont' fry your car. My car for instance has the door handles connected to an ECU. With that voltage, it arcs. You put this on your inner door switches, you might end up frying your electrical system.

    edit
    One more thing. Make sure to install a camera/DVR with the alarm so you can have it on tape if it does work. That would be great

    do you mean it will not prevent intruders, or do you mean the shock system will not work???

    Guys...im not shooting blanks here....i've researched this. i know excatly what im doing. and as much work time and effort ive put into my car not to mention money (as im sure most of you have) i will be damed if i will let any yahoo break in and steal or damage it all. I will do everythign i leagally can to prevent this. the only legal risks i face by doing this at this time are civil, and we all know theres really no gurantee with this one !!!!!
