What became of stepdownplastics.com?

In my Hudson Repro Parts Page I had listed "Stepdown Plastics", which made cast steering wheels, knobs, plates, escutcheons and arm rests. The link http://stepdownplastics.com/ no longer works. Does anyone know what became of this company or individual?

    I believe he was overwhelmed by the magnitude of the tasks and even though he was in demand for the products gave up making the parts.

    Rob is indeed the fellow who started then stopped making these parts.

    Thank you all for this information. Rob has been in touch, and confirms that he's no longer making the parts.

    Yes, it's Rob Fayette, Bellingham, WA. Rob has many other interests, and I think he felt he didn't want to have to devote so much time to making these parts, so he decided to at least take a break. He announced all of this very clearly several years ago. What would be helpful is to have a poll of what parts that he was reproducing people would really like to have, and how much would they pay for those parts. Making these parts is pretty much a labor of love, as there's not much profit involved in these very time-intensive tasks unless there is some reasonable demand as well.
