I guess some of us just don't get the word out enough. Several times during the summer I worked with some other south Sound owners to meet for breakfast in Tacoma, but those arrangements were usually made on Facebook. Anyone who wants to meet up, or meet more of the quiet locals, just get in touch with me. Seems there's something happening at my house at least one weekend a month. Downside is, my house is in Bremerton.
I had the 901 in my T-5R. If you're careful and patient, you can pull the faceplate off the 901 and paint to match the rest of the black trim on an 850 dash. Then carefully remove the paint from lettering using a sharp knife or something.
Ballsy going out on the sand! I did that once in my red wagon, promptly got stuck. We took our family down there once, but Ryan didn't care for the wind so I had to sit in the car while my wife tried to enjoy herself all alone. Looks like you picked a great day for it!
