search zombie here plenty of info - from what I recall they have a past. haven't seen as many complaints lately. I believe they're a husband/wife team these days.

He's got real mixed reviews. Seems to always have fairly cool trucks and engines and such, but then they end up having problems after they are purchased. However, just last week I heard he made one problem right after the fact.

Very shady past. Ripped off a lot of people in the Porsche community.

I bought a used soft top from them that didn't fit and they took it back without any issues or drama.

Start with this thread:

Click on his user name, and you can find other threads and posts.

https://discoweb.org/forums/showthread.php?t=85657 plenty of links to other places in that thread.

Oh Snap....I'm probably going to get banned for posting a link to Dweb now...

I suspect there isn't a business out there without a case where the Client isn't happy.

I bought my 95 LWB RRC with 300tdi from him in 13. It is an awesome truck with a very clean install. Blew a head gasket after 2k road miles and he took care of us on the parts. My take is he is a pretty good mechanic and not a great business person....borderline slippery. I mean really, who names their Company Zombie. Haven't had any dealing since so can't speak beyond that past experience.
