where to buy small barbed wires

Does anyone know where to buy security barbed/ razor wires in small quantity?

I did a quick search online but they are all sold in long/ large quantities.

I only need a very small amount.

Not sure what you mean - are you gonna fix the b/wire on the outside of the trim cover or what?

edit : just noticed you already said [put the b/wire into the obd socket space]!

There isnt much space in there, but good luck, worth a try

I can understand the reasons behind your proposals Kev,and I'd love to wire up my OBD to the electrical main supply when the cars not being used and on the drive.
Nothing would give me more pleasure in finding a barbecued thieving scumbags body covered in glass from the broken side window,the inconvenience would pale into insignificance compared to the elation of depositing the corpse into the trash bin!

Problem would then be paying the bills as I languished at her Majestys pleasure in one of the many prisons up and down the country.

In the UK,being a thieving scumbag gobshite pays,being a victim doesn't!

Why wait until they have broken into the car before fucking them up. Why not just build a razor wire type bird cage around the car like the sort the US use to deflect IEDs from Hummers?

Thats the thing!...I know its quite tight...not sure on how to do it and not damage the port...I was thinking of trying to cello tape it on the actual port itself...but then not even sure if the cover would close properly or not...

I'm so crap at DIY...

Aye, remove the port to free up some space and at the same time, cause the scumbag to have to root around a bit more. Fingers = chopped.

Barb wire is for pussies, stick a tazer in there that will give them something to think about.

You want to seal the area, fill it with water and have frickin' sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their frickin' heads.

Have you moved your port Kev?

I done mine last week,took all of 15 mins, I replaced the port with a home made replacement (part no HC666) that can be replaced by the original when it goes in for service.

This is stage one at the moment,stage 2 will be mains connectable

This is a great MOD hotcoupe. Maybe you could make it spring loaded, so when they open the port it springs into their hands. Just an idea
