Bodie Stroud is no stranger to the world of television, having previously worked on "Rock My RV" and "Monster Garage," so it comes as no surprise that Bodie and his Los Angeles-based shop were picked to star on the rebooted History Channel series "American Restoration."
Bodie Stroud has been fabricating and building vehicles for more than 20 years. He gained name recognition and turned heads in 2009 when he was awarded the Ford Design Award for his 1960 Ford Starliner dubbed "The Scarliner." Since then, he has been building custom cars and has essentially become the go-to car builder in Los Angeles. His clientele ranges from the "average Joe" to celebrities like Tim Allen, Johnny Depp, Drea de Matteo and Johnny Knoxville. In addition to building artfully crafted custom vehicles, Bodie also masterfully restores vehicles – he is currently restoring a vintage Lamborghini for comedian Adam Carolla.
In every episode of American Restoration Bodie and his crew are presented with a task of bringing old American history back to life. So, whether it's restoring a 1967 Ford Mustang to it's former glory, fabricating a bathroom sink out of a 1950 Studebaker Commander, or cutting the front and back ends off a busted Volkswagen van and repurposing the pieces into a fully functional bar, BS Industries is willing and ready to take on ANY challenge...as long as it pays the bills. Bodie and his right hand man Mitchell have some crazy stories of working 48 hours straight to make deadlines to put the money in the bank. That's why at any given time BS Industries has anywhere from 15-30 projects going on. Time is money.
Once a project roles in, its striped down, re-designed, and an old piece of American history is given new meaning and new purpose in todays era. BS Industries makes old amazing.
