For @!#& sake, why me?!?!?!

Sorry for the language, but I don't understand why people have to torture me. I found 2 extra pin stripes running full length of my driver side door! THis isn't the 1st time something has happened to my car. Last August, I left my apartment to go to work @ around 6:30am. Found my ViS CF EVO hood gone, passenger window pulled out and my Sony Xplod stereo, sub and amp gone! Their getaway car had damaged the driver side front fender also. I can't get ahead with this car. I really want to fix it up, but not under these condition. Anyone else ever have anything like this happen to them?


[end rant]

Dang, man... That sucks bad. I can't really do anything about it, but I feel for ya if that counts.

How about this? Just do a lip kit and leave the outside like that. I doubt someone would want that so bad they'd sit there all night, pulling until the two-sided tape came off.

You need to find a place with a garage if you care at all about your car or want to fix it up in the least. Apartment complexes are just like that. It sucks. Sorry to hear about your misfortune.

For the stereo you can use an old trick I read about. This guy on some jeep forums I was a part of lived in a part of town where he ended up just leaving his door unlocked at night because his jeep was broken into so often for the stereo he got tired of replacing the windows. So he ended up buying a new stereo but glued razor blades onto the back of it before installing it. The next morning he came outside to his driver's door being slightly open. Inside was a stereo hanging by the wires, a lot of blood and some free burglars tools.

Just make sure you cover everything in plastic.

^^^ I have heard it works well also, but an alarm would be a good investment.
