Just got my Catalytic converter sawed off at the takeout here in doo-dah,Middle-of-nowhere,kansas. Any other unfortunate boaters with similar experiences.
You couldn't help yourself, eh? I guess someone had to say it.^ does he work on cars in the nude?
An even better idea is to call your insurance company and pay a couple of bucks a month to lower your deductible. I pay $3 each month extra to bring my deductible down from $500 to $100. Then this kind of shit doesn't sting so bad...A buddy just came up with an idea: Go to your local welding shop & ask if they can make a piece of half of a 1/4 inch large diameter steel pipe w/ a flat bar tacked to each side which can be drilled to bolt to your undercarraige over the cat. Tight enough fit that they couldn't just slide the whole pipe & cat out one end or another beacuse of the angle. They allways have tons of scrap to make stuff with, & charge way less than some pre-manufactured part would cost. It would take forever to get through, so they'll just leave it alone. Or @ a 4 wheel drive shop. If you're fortunate enough to see someone under your truck when going to install, you can bash their head in with it. (I know this is supposed to be a nicey-nice community, but theives/tweekers/wannabe gangsters don't count as people, just varmints, & should be treated as such)
