Snowmobile Tilt Trailer Build welding project – Day 10 & 11

Continue Weld-Out of Frame

Day 10 and 11 of this build are together because I only got in 1 hour of welding each day.

So a powerful quote today from a book thats changing my world.

From Rick Hanson’s book Resilient – All about learning to train our brains to deal (well) with the shit that life WILL throw at us.

“It’s usually the small undramatic, sustained efforts over time that make the most difference”

Rick Hanson, Resilient

I love this quote because it’s just that little reminder that, however you want to say it “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, “Just show up” or “Hang in there”, you DO just have to keep going…

My husband and I learned this HUGE lesson during the restoration of our 1948 International KB3 Pickup truck. Small progress IS progress and, trust me, it adds up FAST! Our first, body-off, vehicle restoration completed in 2 years!?!! Yup. I’m not kidding. Small efforts sustained add up.

From this: The day we towed them (yes, we have 2) out of the field.


To this: Rolling ’48 International frame
To this: The finished truck we love.
“Thank you it is cool. No, we are not going to paint it”

Are you in the middle of a project? A project that’s been sitting a while? What small task can you do that would instantly turn it back into an active project? Keep it going!!

These short welding days don’t seem like much but it’s 2 hours more than nothing or 2 hours already into my next garage day. These short days have ‘left me wanting more’ and have honestly and surprisingly been great for keeping my stoke up!

Stay Awesome and build cool shit,

Lisa
