FAN-FAVORITE "TEXAS METAL" GEARS UP TO RETURN FOR ITS BIGGEST SEASON YET
--TEXAS METAL Premieres Today at 10 PM ET/PT on MotorTrend TV--
(Los Angeles, CA) - Everything is bigger in Texas and that's doubly true for everybody's favorite custom vehicle show, TEXAS METAL, which is geared up to return for season 3, premiering today at 10 PM ET/PT on MotorTrend TV. TEXAS METAL brings car fans inside the custom creations of mastermind Bill Carlton and his uber-talented team of fabricators and innovators at Ekstensive Metal Works in the Northside of Houston as they build the best one-off cars and trucks for people from around the country.
In season 3 of TEXAS METAL, after more than twenty years changing the custom vehicle game, Bill and his uber-talented team push themselves to go even bigger with builds they've never done before. Episode 1, "Cab over Custom," airing January 21 at 10 PM ET/PT, sees Bill and the Ekstensive team throw everything they've got into an old customer's 1950 Ford F5 COE. It's not often the team gets the chance to outdo themselves but a radical redesign consisting of a custom handmade bed, headache rack, running boards, metalwork, interior, paint, and new wheels, puts that plan into action. Then in the following week, January 28 at 10 PM ET/PT, the second half of a two-parter, Bill and team go even bigger with one of the biggest builds to date when the client asks for a last minute Cummins diesel engine swap on the year-long 1950 Ford F5 COE project.
In future episodes, the guys fit a 12 Valve Cummins in a 1937 International truck, lift a huge 2019 Silverado 5500 Medium Duty 14 inches, make a custom chassis for a 1969 Corvette, complete a salvage renovation to NFL Hall of Famer and Texas legend Earl Campbell's 1949 Cadillac, and tackle maybe their biggest build yet, a 1996 International dump truck. This season the TEXAS METAL team will tackle a diverse array of automotive projects including:
· A 1969 Corvette;
· A 2001 Ford F-350;
· A 2017 F350;
· A 1965 Ford Falcon Van;
· A 1966 Cobra;
