Easy as hell just wire up a switch to the active line that goes to your fuel pump.

I would stick with a nice stiff toggle switch. The fuel pump should be back with the tank .... mount the switch somwhere very hidden (not under the dash)

Sorry bout all the q's but I found this switch which seems perfect except it has an LED, if I hid it somewhere well enough , do you think the LED would matter , or poss. it only comes on when the switch is on, Im no sure, but it's a neat looking switch

I have seen this!!!!!! You could also put in push button "kill switch" on/into the starter circuit. Have it within arm reach when you are sitting in the drivers seat, but well hidden.

A good point with dis-abling the fuel pump is that the engine will still crank. If the ignition is killed, no crank would point to a kill switch, other way looks like an engine fault.

Yeah makes sense TopGhia, I was thinking that aswell, because if there is nothing at all, then the thief would look for the switch and maybe find it, but if she cranks, maybe they will think that the cars playing up..
Will the car start at all if the fuel pumps not working , even for a second with the fuel thats already in the line?

Cheers

Nope....fuel will usually trickle back into tank.. thats why you hear the fuel pump pressurising the lines when you first turn your key.

In saying this though, if you turn it off, kill the pump and start it again, (in a short time frame) it will prob work for a second or so, but not long.
