Cat converter

Folks let me tell you, get some high temp orange paint and spray paint your converter. Also get a engraver and put the last 8 of your Vin number on it. I had mine stolen right out of my yard. These criminals in ny have nothing to fear and everything to gain. They are doing it in broad daylight because it only takes less than 5 minutes to cut out. Put cameras out do anything to deter them. It cost me 3300.

Plattsburgh ny. Up near lake champlain. Trust me it's not just out west. Its all over the country. The federal government needs to step in and make it very hard for someone to sell them. According to the state troopers they get 5 calla a week just locally

Wow, all the way up Plattsburgh. Well, when I lived in VT, there were a fair share of scumbags in Burlington, so....maybe they'll start panting from exertion of theft and accidentally get their tongue stuck on the freezing metal. How sweet would that be!

If I had no insurance to cover it, I would leave it off before I paid $3300 or anywhere close to that to replace it.

Last week when the police investigated one of the shootings in Philly they found a bunch of stolen converters in one of the shooter's car.

Turf wars over the local converters?

Those of us who live in an area with emissions testing have no choice.
