Last week, I had fun hanging out with the Ekstensive Metalworks crew in Houston, Texas. Working with a bunch of guys, you never know what kind of shenanigans are just around the corner. This story is true.
Me and my buddy Harley were taking photos of the talented team working on Project Black Sheep, our '09 Dodge Ram. They were responsible for building a suspension that would swallow up our 26-inch MHT wheels and Nitto tires, but still make the big Dodge ride smooth and handle.
One short interruption was a small swarm of flying termites that had surfaced from underneath an old piece of scrap wood. Now, keep in mind, shop owner Bill Carlton is a lot of things (fabricator, home handy man, and an all-around good guy) but he's not an exterminator—or so we thought.
Going to investigate where these termites were coming from, Bill disappeared. Yielding a lighter and a can of brake cleaner, Bill emerged on the scene and provided a pyrotechnic light show for all of us in the shop. The termites didn't think it was so funny.
