Asfir gone

I finally got around to ordering some Asfir steps/sliders on my 110: http://www.asfir4x4.com/538122 My current ones with jagged rusty holes make my wife uncomfortable when our 18 month old plays around it.

Upon calling to make sure they're in stock, I'm told that they do not have any in stock - the Asfir factory is closing and there won't be any more.

Back to square one....

True, but I'm also looking for steps. Found these Australian ones; they look nice but they're $AU 860 (about $US 800):

Sounded like it was Asfir the company - they said that they could not get any more.

One (me/I) always appreciates an eclectic (and you're right I don't know what that means) sense of humor...
