My 454's all-Zoops Products install

I'm building my first hot rod and so far, it has taken me far longer (and much more money!) than I ever would have believed. One thing has REALLY been positive. My experience with (and support shown by) Zoops Products.
I'm new on the forum (unable to post in Company Reviews) but would like others to know about my experience with Zoops.

My 454 Chevy big block is fully dressed in Zoops hardware.
That says a lot. As a retired Electrical Engineer, ASQC certified Quality Engineer and "Attention to detail" oriented person, I could be a company's worst nightmare.

The Zoops product/service is exemplary by any measure.
They have promptly returned my many calls/emails and have always been attentive, patient and positively responsive to my queries and requests.

They were at SEMA last week showcasing many products including their new "bullet design" serpentine system and even a newly designed serpentine for the MG group!

The heart of any hotrod is the engine. Mine sports a Zoops Carbon-Fiber-on-Chrome Air cleaner with matching Zoops valve covers with PCV breathers, Zoops wire looms and of course, the Zoops Posi-Trak Serpentine pulley system with all the extras. Even more, I have all-flames Zoops steering wheel with matching column adapter and horn button. The serpentine installed perfectly and I couldn't possibly be happier with the end results. Several friends recommended Zoops to me. And now... I whole heartedly recommend them to you. - Steven L. O'Harra

Are you in any way, shape or form affiliated or associated with Zoops?

You should be able to post in Company Reviews, that's where this belongs.

Moving thread to Lounge.

Thought this was an open forum...

Perhaps I misunderstood. I thought this was a forum where you could discuss products, services, and share experiences. No, I am not with Zoops or for that matter, Direct Sheet Metal or Bitcxxx Sheetmetal. As I stated earlier, I am a retired U.S. Coast Guard officer buiding his first hot rod. I've hit some pretty bad bumps along the way but like to share good experiences with others so they might skip some of the potholes. You can move this thread to the "lounge" or whereever you like. I'm new to this forum and perhaps it is not for me.
I'd be glad to share photos of my build (have taken pictures every step of the way). my wife and I both hold around 70 AWS welding certifications in GMAW GTAW, SMAW including steel, stainless, 4130, galvanized, aluminum and titanium, I'm a retired U.S. Coast Guard Officer (ElectEng), ASQC Certified Quality Engineer and Certified Novell Engineer. I've traveled the world as a QA looking at companies, QA systems, production lines, stress testing and every imaginable process of engineering and manufacturing.

I am comfortable with my experience in accessing product/service.

If I had posted negative experiences with a company would that have better suited/serviced the forum and membership?

Company Reviews -- Not permitted till 25 posts

The moderator said I could post a company review. Good idea.
After writing one for each of the companies I spoke of, I went through the process of posting it... right until the final step where you "preview" to post.

Only then (and after all that work) does the site produce an "Oops" message citing a 25 post minimum before you can submit a company review.

I don't mind devoting some time with others if it is well served but its time to get back to what I enjoy... working on my truck.

Hi Steve, it looks like we've all gotten off on the wrong foot here. We've been deluged at times with enthusiastic sales people trying to disguise advertising by stating them as experience. Many times. So suspicion runs high when we see an enthusiastic rodder excited about a product and wanting to share his experience. You're in the right place, and I hope you stick around. Zoops has has some bad feedback on this forum in the past and members can be a suspicious lot. Post some pics and share more info on your build. What type of vehicle are you building? I gather it's a truck, how about some details?

Stick around, don't get your feathers get ruffled by a few, we all mean well. We have a great bunch of guys here, all wanting to keep this site the best rodders' site on the net. And you can be one of them. We do have company owners and reps here also, Eastwood guy pops in, SPI paint guy is here everyday, and about a dozen more than I can't think of at the moment. They all contribute and abide by our guidelines, it works out well. Dan

What Dinger said, and welcome to the board. As a moderator, I was only asking, and thanks for the clarification. Since there was no technical merit and not a tech question as that forum is designed for, I moved it to the lounge, it'll get lots of exposure there. Enjoy the board.

I like a woman that can cook, clean, and keep her man happy. A welding woman is a HUGE plus in my book, and heqq yes, I am impressed!

Zoop is a company that sell dress up kits and things for your rides. I think .
They have billet parts and things for several type vehicles.
