Velocity rides into the heart of Texas to bring car fans inside the clever custom creations of mastermind Bill Carlton and his team in the all new series Texas Metal. As the owner and innovator behind Houston's Ekstensive Metal Works, Carlton pushes his team to build the best one-off cars and trucks for people from around the country. Texas Metal follows their work as they make the ordinary extraordinary using 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.
A long-time client wants to improve upon a near-perfect '68 Ford Ranger. The team creates an all-new custom chassis, handmade interior and Coyote 5.0 engine swap.
A 1996 Impala surprises the guys when they discover it's an imposter. The team improves it with custom body fabrications, rear subframe and handmade interior.
Bill is no stranger to truck builds getting bigger than planned, so it's no surprise when a 1971 Suburban goes even bigger with lifted air suspension and interior.
The team drops a new 2020 Denali dually to the floor, so make one of their longest custom chassis ever. And, they get a pro-mod Bel Air back on the track.
Ekstensive turns a stock 2020 Denali dually into frame-dropping, show-stopping work truck. As a final touch, Bill handmakes articulating speakers for the bed.
A '64 Lincoln has been collecting dust for years. The guys bring this classic roadster back with a late-model Coyote engine and handmade interior.
A 1971 Suburban returns to the shop for more power and even more custom metalwork. When a client finds parts and pieces of a '68 C10, Bill gets to work.
Bill gets déjà vu on a 1985 Chevy C10 square body. He and the team try to outdo themselves with a handmade chassis and air ride, interior and bed.
Rocker Ted Nugent brings in his beloved '74 Bronco. Bill and the guys make a ground up, all-terrain beast unlike any other. With his creative sparks flying, Bill gets going on a build he's dreamed about for years: a handmade, all-tube, off-road buggy.
A client wants to surprise his dad with a custom '46 Ford Coupe. Starting with little more than a car skeleton, the team builds it from the ground up. Plus, Bill surprises his wife when he goes classy and supercharged with her 2021 Escalade.
