starter cut off switch question

i've heard talk about doing this, but don't really know anything about it. its for a 72 blazer. would it be possible to run a switch into a lockable ceter console? i am thinking about getting one of the heavy duty tuffy ones. i am going to put an alarm on it, but want some added theft protection... thanks

It only takes like 23 seconds to crawl under it and use a screwdriver to short the solenoid contacts and start her up.

Re: starter cut off switch question

i did couple of "home made" theft deterrents, (one of my cars was broken itno with one of those done, they broke the ign but couldn't start it and left it) if i were you i would do that to the fuel pump (or fi. ign. main fuse),if its electric, cut it off, let the potential thief crank it as much as he wants but with no juice he can't start it, and will leave it thinking its a broke piece of crap. hide the key part under the seat or somewhere where they're not usually found. thats what i would do if i would do it.
