Video: 11 Months, 3000 Pictures, & A Lot of Coffee

This may not be strictly motorcycle-related, though we are pretty sure most motorcyclists can relate to the time and effort it takes to take apart a four-cylinder motor and put it back together again. As if refurbishing a motor bought off eBay, and swapping it out for a junked one that is still in the car wasn’t hard enough, our protagonist decided to document the whole process with thousands of photos. Originally only intending to use the snaps to ensure all the pieces went back together in the right spots, a short animated movie clip was born from his efforts. Enjoy it after the jump, and thanks for the tip Chris!

    That was just fantastic! I’ve really enjoyed my own projects, but I never thought to document them in such detail. Nice work!

    Would he consider doing projects like this for television so we can finally get rid of Jerry Springer, the Kardashians, and every other “reality” show?!?!

  • norton

    lovely little video

    …any ideas on what the stuff is he’s spraying on to clean it all up (from around 1:04 onwards)? seems to be shifting the grime so easily, would love to know what it is

    @norton: He’s using a sandblaster to remove all the dirt and paint to take the material down to bare metal. Afterward, it’s ready for refinishing.
