Yes, there's a facebook group for washington car audio addicts and a team called NWSPL. In 2010 there will be some spl/car shows too.

Like a "link" to a webpage. If they are serious about anything they will have a webpage. Why doesn't someone start one that has some kind of academic training in management?

Because a team isn't a formal group? What will a website prove? PM Ridnclean if you're interested about news on events and comps.

there isnt much of an interest i SPL in washington. Those of us that are interested just kind of know each other :crazy:

We've been trying to get more interest up here, we'll see how that goes though

alot of car clubs are rarely located in WA, there is "tons" in Portland that came up from the CT event, and to other car shows throughtout.

as for car audio, NWSPL is about to begin, we just gotta get things right for the 2010 year and hopefully get some competitions, and alot more meets.

im tryin to find a shop to help host meets so we got no problem finding somewhere to go.

Maybe because a "website" would contain information for people like me and would include things such as "contact information, location, events, and/or club sponsored activites. Same reason other "teams" or clubs have websites and forums.

There may not be much interest but that is like everything else, if nobody sees it, hears it or is exposed to it eventually the "interest" in it will fade away. Everytime, and I mean "everytime" that I drive my car anywhere I get comments on the stereo system. I was even pulled over in Puyallup by a state patrol and he asked me to play some country music because he wanted to see what it sounded like on a "big stereo system." That was the strangest encounter with a police officer I have ever had.

I have already gotten three younger primates into some boom boom because of exposure from my car. If there is a team and they actually "do things together" around the state that is called exposure and sparks interest. I may use lower end stereo equipment but it is loud and it sounds good. I went from Orion to Crunch and have never looked back. I was spending HUGE amounts on higher quality when my Crunch stuff does just as good if not better. You wont get the sound quality like focal or CDT from them but if your really into boom boom(SPL) who freakin cares about sound quality? The Crunch GPV3000.1D will stand up to any other amp of similar wattage all day for a fraction of the price.

I have another friend that has a 1964 Impala SS that she restored and is putting a stereo system in it. She has been wanting to find some kind of car club that does both car shows and car audio that has regular meets like once a month or so depending on weather conditions. She works for the Department of Lisencing and has weekends off.

the brand of paint is called american accents, the cap of the can is rough like the box. i used to get it from home depot but the one here in kent stopped carrying it in black.

well i didnt do full coverage on that box, i made it look kind of camo-ish. but on that it was like 4 cans i believe. its gonna take a lot to get a good full layer on it. **** is expensive too. 8 bucks a can :/
