Profile

Is Bodie Stroud a designer, mechanic, builder, inventor or TV star. Well actually all of the above.

Bodie’s a small town boy whose first vehicle at age 16 was a beater 1961 VW bus that needed a lot of work. Since Dad wouldn’t pop for any of the repairs, Bodie had no choice - he had to figure it out himself. and that “figure it out/do it yourself” determination has been a hallmark of how he’s lived and worked ever since.

A refugee of automotive corporate America who got fed up with the rat race, Bodie decided to go it alone & opened up his own hot rod shop - Bodie Stroud Industries - in 2007. His building prowess showed from the get-go when he won 2007 Truck of the Year at Truck Jamboree and he’s had plenty of awards since, including 2009 Ford Design Award, and 2 SEMA “Best of Show” victories.

His jaw dropping builds have been featured in numerous magazines and TV shows; in fact he was one of the stars of “Monster Garage” with Jesse James and “Rock My RV” with Brett Michales. He’s even got quite a celebrity following, having built cars for Tim Allen, Johnny Dep & “Jackass” star Johnny Knoxville.

But Bodie wasn’t satisfied with just being one of the most successful prolific builders around. His engineering skills led to the creation of the Bodie Stroud Industries EZ - Aline adjustable tubular control arms which he now holds a patent on! Bodie Stroud - a man of many talents.

Nice...

Very good but honestly Bodie the heat line shows inconsistency and should show all the same shadow. Constructive criticism isnt bad is it? I am a 6G certified welder and I promise you that it can be done better. Starts and stops is why the inconsistency, always start before then push puddle back to the last finish spot. Hope this helps and great work!
