break in

Hi lads,

It only took 5 weeks since leaving her outside the house but the 155 has been broken into last night. They just took a bit of loose change and a very sentimental rosary my dear mother got me. Doesn't look like they tried to hotwire it, the barrell and steering column casing is all intact
Does anybody know where I can get "Coded" stickers for the window in case they try again? I'm sure they will. They bent the door back to get in so I have fixed that. Also do Haslfords or anybody esle do good strong lock and chains for the steering wheel?

Moral of the story is dont leave anything valuable in your car, take it all out.

I hope they all die alone as a virgin...

Instead of the chain try something which covers the whole steering wheel, I think it's called autolock, I remember reading about it as being the best deterrent. At least they didn't take and burn out that beautiful 155

I dont think they were out to steal it, at least Saturday night they were not, like I said the barrell is intact. Just seeing whats on the take, my next door neighboors cars are always getting broken into. Although recently it hasn't happened as he caught one of them one night and gave him a hiding. Obviously didnt break enough of his bones. Gurriers just moved on to next door.
The door is fine I think. Looks like I managed to reshape her inline with the rear door. We had a big dump of rain this afternoon so I'm going out now to check she is dry. That alarm might be an idea after all Damien. I remember you mentioned it to me in Kilkenny. I will also look into trying to get stickers for the window to let them know its coded. Anybody know where to pick these up?

Mark
