RE: [DML] Re: Question and strange car show behavior

I've been showing my D in various shows around Western Canada for the past 8
years, and have learned a few tips:

I've done something very similar to Mark V's bar, kinda as hybrid of this
and Dave Stragard's post.

I bought some of that plastic chain (in white) I got the smaller links
because I like the look, then I bought a short length of larger links (also
white plastics) and gave then a quick trim with a utility knife so that they
slip over the strikers.  

So far no problems with them, plus the added benefit is they give little
hands (kids) something to touch when they look inside, rather then the car.

I know it's not gonna stop a real ...jerk... from getting in, but it's just
a friendly hint that the open doors are not an invitation.  (Though I don't
recall ever saying no if they ask.)

All that said, so far I've found the best way is to just be around the car
and be friendly ....  Ethusiasm for the car is very contagious.

Also be friendly with the owner's of the cars around you, the D tends to
draw attention, so be sure to check out their cars; a 2nd or 3rd set of
friendly eyes around is always helpful.

This is how i keep people out of my car at shows. It looks stainless and
somewhat matches the car.
