Default What happened to Total Performance Engineering in Las Vegas?

Its been a while since I talked to Jeff, and I tried to contact him regarding some front widebody fenders.

TPE's website is 'under contruction', and the email I had from Jeff bounces...

Does anyone know what happened to TPE?

There was another thread a few weeks ago about TPE. Looks like they are gone. Last I heard Jeff was hanging out on the Camaro forums.

would be a real shame if those fenders went away...I think a lot of the community prefers them to the L5s...I know i do!

I talked to Jeff today. He is ill and will be limited on what he can do.
He can still get us some fenders if we need them, but he wont be stocking them.

Did he outline how he can get them, or if someone else can go direct to teh manufacturer? They were on my 2013 Mod list and I like them better than the L5s

Holy smokes!! I slogged through all of that! That's some interesting stuff. Did the guy (Mario) ever get his money back for that "longblock"? Just reading through all of that would make a good movie of the week. Do they have those anymore? That's some crazy stuff.

What is wrong with the Corvette aftermarket? I've never seen such scum, yet so many stand up excellent people all in the same industry. The sad thing is guys like this will stay in business because people aren't always part of a remarkable forum like this who look out for one another.

Why are you bumping a 5 year old thread to post this?
