the only thing i see here or hear, is supposedly the new owner saying that Area51Fab and the new Area51 is two different company. But why is it the new Area51 is taking all the products that Area51fab produced and placing it in their line of products. To me i think they are the same company with jus the last word of their company name changed.


LOL what does all this say about their customer service? SUCKASS

P.S: Remember you guys owe alot of people a hell lot of money. And your claim of trying to help Dave out just suddenly vanished?

Eminence you are right on there my friend. It looks like they are pretending to be the same company but dumping the old debt. That is no way to do business in my opinion.

We are still here...

I apologize for not coming onto this site as often as I used to. Fankly I've been to busy to keep up with all the PM's and emails from all the different websites. For the record Area51Hyperformance sells the Area51Fabrications product and continues production on it because its a great product and there is still the demand for it. If any of you had millions of dollars of research and development, molds and jigs on any product that was still wanted it would only make sense to continue distributing the porduct. Simply put we have the right to sell any product I see fit. We are very different from Area51Fabrications and that should be obvious. We do not fabricate anymore. The product that was completed and got good responses from the consumers of couse I am going to distribute. I am a retailer and do not just sell the A51 product. We sell everything and anything that the public wants. We specialize in JDM parts like Jun, Spoon, Cusco, Tein ect. If you cant tell the difference between a retail shop and a fabrications shop then thats just sad. In any case if any of you feel you need to contact me and Im not responding to PMS just call. Myself or one of my sales staff will assist you @650-525-9020. Thanks to you that continue to suport A51 we apreciate it greatly. Ken...

So you stopped doing business as Area51 Fab to drop debts, then formed a new company with a very similar name which "purchased" the assets or rights to those assets (while dusting off the debt) so you could continue doing business? Sounds illegal at worst and very sketchy at best to me.

Who does the manufacture now if Area51 Fab isn't operational and you're "just a retailer". I dont' think you're just a retailer because you say straight out:

Oy. Maybe help shed a 'lil light here?

Wether you beleive me or not is not my concern because its the truth. To be a fabrication shop you have the ability to manufacture pretty much anything. Or at least a good fabrication shop anyways. In anycase I dont do any fabrication of any kind and only sell parts. No we did not purchase any rights from Area51Fabrications. The owner is a good freind of mine and said I could use the name and sell his product. Why would I say no. As much as some people may cry and say A51 did bad business its only because they have nothing better to do. All unsettled business from the old A51 I have personaly tried to settle even though being a seperate company its really not my concern. The old A51 does not owe anybody anything with the exception of a few that I am still currently working with and all accounts will be stettled. So once again two seperate companies guys. Different owners, different Staff and different markets. Hope this helps :)....

If you are not affiliated with the old Area 51, then why in the world would you pay their debts??? With that said, if you do settle debts with guys like Eminence then I will say that most if not all will call you a stand up guy. I think that would prove more to the consumer than anything else you could possibly do. Just my opinion...

Thanks for backing me up Wxman.


How are you going to tell us that you are not fabricating products? Didn't the "new" air intake box needed to be fabricated? And what about the "new" supercharger" system, you posted up.


And as to your comment about, you're abiligate to produce any products that you feel fits, due to demands. What you are telling me is that I can take other manufacture's ideas duplicated and make profit off of it? Damn dude, you might as well go bankrupt now because you are looking at lawsuit head over heels.

Different owners, staffs? Seems like you are getting help and affliation with the old owner, Dave. Again, it jus seems like you took out the Fabrication and placed it with Hyperformance. Area51Fab did the same thing, they fab and also distribute products. Hence, thats how we got started with the company.

As Wxman has stated up above, if you are claiming that this is two seperate and different companies, why are you paying for their debts? In my own personal opinion, your company aren't doing anything to resolve such claims from the old accounts. Making all these statements, but again there isn't anything to show for it. IS300.Net is a big forum, and almost every lexus is300 enthuasiast comes onto this site, and they research about everything little thing, from parts to companie's reputation. And the way things are going for your company as a IS300 part fab/distrib. you are at a downfall. It wasn't too long ago, your company posted up claim of new products coming out, and 2 weeks later, nothing to show for.
