It supposedly took 11 months, 3000 pictures, and a lot of coffee to create this stop-motion video of full tear down and reassembly of a Triumph Spitfire engine.
The engine may not be one that most hot rodders will find all that intriguing, but we promise that the animation makes it impossible to not enjoy it!
What started out as just a collection of photos a Triumph Spitfire owner snapped while disassembling an engine he bought off eBay to remember how things went together, grew into the concept of animating the entire process. The result is a stop-motion animation video of a engine disassembling, cleaning, and then reassembling itself. We even get to see it dropped into it's new home in the Spitfire. It's seriously cool for any gearhead to watch; we've already watched it a dozen times.
The best part? The leftover pieces at the end. Who hasn't been there?
The only question we have is; why did it take 11 months to do this?
