anti-theft boot badge/lock

after having my badge stolen the other day, i've come up with the idea of connecting it to the alarm.
i've fitted a micro switch,welded a pin and wired the whole lot to the boot light.
now if the badge is turned just a fraction the alarm will be triggered.

i have some jpeg's but not sure how/if you can post them here.

could send them by e-mail if anyone is interested ?

Will the alarm set if you leave the badge in an 'open' position? Just wondering whether you could come back to find that the battery has drained overnight or such...

If you're going to all that trouble, wire it up to a kilo of Semtex in the boot. That'll learn 'em.

yes the alarm can be armed even if the badge is up, the alarm gives an extra chirp just the same has if the boot lid is not fully closed.

not sure what would happen if a thief left the boot open, does anyone know if the alarm would constantly be sounding then resetting, then sounding untill the battery goes flat ?

i think that we should be allowed to wire our cars up to the mains, in my opinion if anyone touches your car they do so at their own risk !
