HBTV points its lens at pinstriper Andy Kawahara – Click above to watch video after the jump

The late Kenneth "Von Dutch" Howard is probably the pinstriper best known to non-hot-rodders – and not because he's considered the father of the modern pinstripe, but because of the clothing label named after him. Yet the art is still practiced by those who care for genuine article, not its vinyl equivalent.

Josh Clason's Depth of Speed series takes a look at one such artist, Andy Kawahara, who admits to pinstriping something every single night, whether it be a car or an old piston. The video after the jump tells the story, and does so beautifully.
