Red Kap has released three videos featuring BMX rider, X Games champion and classic car builder Heath Pinter.

The video series traces Pinter’s passion-fueled journey as he designs and builds a 1928 Ford Roadster. The custom car has been built specifically to compete in The Race of Gentlemen, a one-of-a-kind event to be held on the beaches of the Jersey Shore Oct. 3-4.

The videos (with links) are:

"The Builder" covers Pinter's goals and aspirations as a builder

"The Craft" looks at the long road to becoming a true artisan.

"The Build" offers a sneak peak of Pinter's roadster in the heat of competition.

“Red Kap’s Craftsman series was developed to celebrate individuals that have a passion for building and follow those dreams to build, whether they are an expert or novice craftsman,” says Chris Holcombe, vice president and general manager of distributor brands for Red Kap.

“They are not always professionals - many are weekend builders or hobbyists - but all have an unrelenting aspiration in a job done right, and we want to honor these individuals."

Red Kap will continue to add more Craftsmen to this program in the months ahead. Each will be chosen based on authentic character, style and commitment to the automotive industry.

While Red Kap serves the manufacturing, transportation and construction industries, it specializes in performance workwear for the automotive industry. Red Kap is a division of VF Imagewear Inc., which is part of VF Corp.

Heath Pinter, a California native, is a Pro BMX rider and award-winning car builder. Pinter has built several one-of-a-kind vehicles including a 1965 Lincoln Continental, 1954 Shoebox Ford, 1955 Buick Special, 1931 Ford Model A and a 1950 3-window Chevy truck, which he displayed at the 2014 SEMA show for Red Kap. Pinter’s distinctive build style and relentless passion for improving his craft has made him a natural fit to be featured in the series. Though he started out building vehicles for his personal use, his creations attracted enough industry attention to turn his hobby into a serious profession.
