    Hey,
    I was thinking of throwing together a install meet, at my shop. Probably on a Sunday towards the end of the month, just so members can come work on their cars, tire rotation, oil changes, help each other out, or anything else. The shop would have 4 lifts and a oil change lift. Who would be interested? If Enough interest sparks this could become a regular thing. Although I'm expecting this post to just sit here forever, just because how common the Prius is, especially in the bay.

    I would be in. I am located in walnut creek, and I have done quite a bit on my car and can help.

    You have to give the meetups a snazzy name and call it a party. Then people will show up.
    And food... People like food, too

    Best of luck.

    Thanks, lets see how many more members chime in.
    I'm sure we can arrange a BBQ or a one dish "party". Thanks

    Lets just hope we can get 5+ people together for the first meet.

    Boston is quite far. On the other hand, the gas price for the round trip is about the best you can get with a car! :LOL:

    Great, expect to see you there.

    I plan on wrapping my roof, I guess we can do do it then. Just a feeler, does anyone plan on doing and oil change, air filter, tire rotation, at the meet?
