    According to this a car safe is allowed. I doesnt state who is allowed or not to install a vehicle safe. As long as it complies with the law. I dont know if there is a later updated version

    The body is often the chassis these days :)

    However, I would understand it as a non removable part of the vehicle.

    But in SA we have very consistent proof that the entire vehicle is removable, even from a locked garage behind a 9-foot palisade fence.
