Plot Synopsis

TEXAS METAL is a one-hour reality series that follows Bill Carlton and his crew at Houston's Ekstensive Metal Works, as they build one-off cars and trucks for people from around the country. When the team creates these custom vehicles, they use everything from rusted out wrecks to top-of-the-line vehicles including a 1955 Chevy Truck, a 2014 Porsche 911, a 1967 Lincoln Continental, a 1966 Chevrolet C10 and more. Bill is a third-generation welder. Forty years ago, his father purchased the property where Extensive Metals Works now sits, and it's where Bill grew up building cars including his first out of a small shop on the property. Now in that same spot in north Houston, Ekstensive cranks out wild, top-notch customizations that are the envy of car lovers everywhere. The series premiere, "Low Down & Dually," features a brand new 2017 Ford 350 with less than 600 miles and a 2014 Porsche 911 looking for extreme customizations. In true Ekstensive fashion, Bill and his team replace original factory parts in each rides with custom fabricated bodywork and intricately welded structural for their very own custom touch. This season, Bill and his crew also customize a 1961 Cadillac DeVille, a 2006 Chevy Kodiak, a 1963 Grumman Delivery Truck and more amazing builds. Season 2 of TEXAS METAL premiered on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT on Velocity. In the season opener, "Denali Drop," a client wants Bill to set the bar for custom SUVs with a 2018 Yukon Denali. The guys get busy with handmade chassis, body mods, interior and twin turbos. Ekstensive goes full gangster with a 1948 Mercury, remaking this legendary car from the inside out.
MotorTrend Network premiered "The Grand Finale," the Season 2 finale of TEXAS METAL on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT. Bill and the team bring the wrecked 1970 Suburban hauler back to life as a long bed, four door, crew cab dually with a 5.9 Cummins diesel engine, custom chassis and suspension. A 1965 Plymouth Belvedere II gets some extra muscle with a Mopar crate Hemi.
