-=Solve me to get digits to sub stage1=-



Clue to help with grid puzzle: tens spot on seed #3 = "A", ones slot on seed #3 = "P". there are no zeroes in the puzzle
Subtract Red, Green, Blue from west coords to get the location of the final container.

Logsheet must be signed to claim the smiley

Figure out the name of this caches title and get a special kudos on the front page!

A note about trading: there is a good sized container a few feet from the final container, DON'T put swag in the puzzle part as that will adversely affect it. Thank you.

edit: changed size to regular from small since trading container is regular sized, not small
