Full Custom Garage
Full Custom Garage is a vehicle-customizing reality series on MAVTV. The show premiered on MAVTV on 1 April 2014 with Ian Roussel as its main cast.
Moreover, the entire show is based on only one person, i.e., Roussel’s work with cars/bikes/trucks to make it fully custom. In the series, Roussel uses his classical customizing techniques to build beautiful and sometimes bold custom cars.
He makes use of scraps, old car parts, and raw materials that he collects from his friends. The most shocking and interesting part is that Roussel does not use any blueprints to design and customize his vehicles.
Moreover, the whole idea of the series is to let people see what a talented car customizer with a brilliant idea can make using limited financial sources.
As of 2022, Full Custom Garage has completed airing a total of seven seasons. All seven seasons and their episodes are currently available to watch on mavtvplus.com.
