Here's something you may or may not have known about. Remember crawling under your old truck years ago to hack saw off that old clogged up converter and throwing it away. Well think again nowdays on that one. Since the price of precious metals have skyrocketed, there's stuff in your converter that are equal the price of a new converter. In other words it can buy you a new one, if you're a mind to put a new one back on. Otherwise will buy you a lot of beer or new parts or both. Catalytic converters have only small traces of the metals — platinum, palladium and rhodium — but there’s enough in them for a thief to resell stolen units for up to $200 apiece. Rhodium is among the most expensive metals on Earth, commanding as much as $6,000 an ounce on the open market. Scrap dealers are paying top dollar — platinum, palladium, rhodium inside of them — and they’re getting top dollar on resale. Across the country police are reporting a dramatic increase of folks having their converters hacked off while the car was parked in a dark parking area either at home or at a business lot. So if you are awakening in the middle of the night to a battery zip saw hacking away at something. Grab your 38, 45 etc and get out there quick if you don't want to loose $90 to $200 bucks. I think I will hide till he's got it sawed all the way off though, then let um look at the other end of a barrel while I call 911. Don't really wanna kill some stupid kid over $200 and no sense risking what kind of jury by my peers I might end up with otherwise. LOL.
