This stop-motion of a Triumph Spitfire engine being stripped and then put back together, titled “11 Months, 3000 pictures and a lot of coffee,” is magnificent; the musical pairing sublime. YouTube user nothinghereok says:
Started out as just a collection of snaps as I stripped down an engine bought off ebay. (To replace my old engine, which had suffered catastrophic failure). The snaps were so that I remembered how everything went, so I could put it back together again.
Then I realised it’d be quite cool to make it an animation. found some suitable music, rekindled my ancient knowledge of Premiere, storyboarded it, shot it as I worked on the engine (my poor DSLR got covered in engine oil), this was the result.
