I once found my doors in someone else's pickup truck, my hood up, and it out of gear and rolled to the bottom of the parking lot. Pretty sure that's the day I flipped **** on a dude and jumped on the roof of his car, since he felt the need to climb on mine.

I can safely say if that happened to me, and I saw my doors in a guys truck, Id take the doors, and along the way of getting them back, Id `accidentally` scratch the entire length of the vehicle with my keys as I was too busy carrying my doors back to my vehicle to notice that my keys took his paint right off and down to bare metal.

Then maybe take his doors.

Phew!! I did however realize that I was going to catch a *hitload of negative comments for my hood lock but I it may just slow them down long enough for me to catch them. I don't live in the most secure neighborhood. But I yanked on pretty good and it's holding up very well plus you can adjust how far the hood opens by adjusting the chain.

That's a great idea and it throws off just the right amount of light. Do you have to turn it on and off manually?

Not to burst anyones bubble but thats not a light meant for the elements, and would have to be manually switched on and off

You gotta realize it was probably just to pass inspection. Just don't use zip ties to hold on your plates. Even though they'll probably last longer than the bolts or screws. They don't really appreciate that

The truck wasn't owned by the guy who did it.
