Where are all of Autosource's Threads???

All the autosource for sale threads are gone, including the one for the ZL1 Bumper with mailslot (which I just ordered). What happened? This looks very bad.

Was just about to ask the same thing?!
I really don't want to freak out, but I just put all my money on the table for that bumper.

got tracking number, but it said it was just created and never shipped?

It's what camaro5 does when a sponsor forgets to pay their sponsorship. Why they do that, no idea but it is what it is.

Mine also shows it hasnt shipped yet. I really hope they just forgot to pay their sponsorship, something seems very fishy with this though. Things have been very fishy throughout the whole ordering process with them

Guys, mine just updated this morning to actually show shipping information and the scheduled delivery date. Looks like its UPS that is at fault for this and not the seller.

You can't delete entire threads. Only mods can. SO the mods must have been the ones to shut it down which leads me to believe that it was a forgotten payment issue. Mods would have no idea if this guy was a scammer unless people started threads on it and even then they wouldn't shut the thread down because of that.

Also it looks as if the mods deactivated autosource's account (which is also related to him being a sponsor and not paying the sponsor fees). You can tell his account may have been deactivated because you can no longer see when he was last active.

yea right! This was a group buy. This is how that works. Everytime I've asked autosource a question, they've responded fast. This "shipping nightmare" isn't their fault at all. I can't count how many times I've ordered from amazon or ebay for a vendor to say its shipped and ups not update their info. I've gotten packages delivered before ups even updated it had changed cities. Which I don't care, I just want my package. Once autosource delivers the package to ups its all ups from there.

If you order a regular bumper from autosource they ship very fast. A group buy obviously takes longer since you have to get to a certain number of people. But you're getting a much better deal so it wouldn't bother me.

Dont worry guys lol..i was at their warehouse last night to pick up my carbon fiber lip i had left there after installing my bumper at their location initially. All bumpers were already at ups, i saw 10+ bumpers there at first and last night they weren't. I think i saw 2 that were going to be shipped out that night because those were orders placed that day specifically. I am a customer just like you guys so trust me its all up to ups at this point. Luckily for me i live literally 1 mile away so pickup was a quick option lol. Cheers!

+1
Ship company's sometimes have slow processing. So your tracking numbers might not be updating due to their slow processing.

Auto source is a legit company so you guys have nothing to worry about. They just forgot to pay vendor fees most likely.

SinisSick, does that mean you know him personally. With your sponsor level and your large amount of positive feedbacks on your profile, it would be easier to not get so nervous if you were to say Autosource is good for it.

According to my tracking info, the bumper made it to the local distribution center to be delivered tomorrow afternoon. Here's hoping everything is in there...

I know him personally through interactions of my bumper and have seen all your bumpers personally. How might you ask, he test fit his prototype on my car since I live literally 1 mile away. I've seen a couple other parts they are working on so next months should be interesting...
