Post your Christmas list here

My family keeps calling asking me what I want for Christmas. I keep telling them I don't need anything but they are going to press anyway so I gave them a list.

Black Engine Enamel
Nylon Scrub Pads
New Torque Wrench
7/8" Clubman cafe handlebars
1 square foot of 1/4" black leather to make grips out of
18" X 24" sheet of 18 gauge steel
New Digital Calipers
1 role of .035 flux core welding wire
a gallon of simple green
blue shop towels
various stainless steel or brass scrub brushes
a 100 pound bag of medium course sand
orange dremel stones
1 quart of black urethane base coat paint
1 quart of urethane gloss clear coat

They said to me, "I'm not going to buy that. You're not supposed to buy that kind of stuff for Christmas." I said why? This is what I need the most, anything else will be in the way cause I have too much "stuff" laying around as it is. HAHA! Christmas shopping is annoying. So this is a thread to post to your fellow XS riders the things that you can't tell your family you want. I'm curious to hear what's on your Christmas list.

Think you may fare better requesting a 'still new crated' XS11..........

If you don't have to work on it, how are you to have a love hate relationship?

That gauge cluster is sweeet!

A heated shop so that I can work in comfort during the winter. Since that is not going to happen CA$H so that I can buy the parts I need.

PVC pipe and $20 worth of plastic can solve that. If you can get it air tight and scavange something to insulate it with then it will stay warm enough to work in, maybe even warm enough to paint. Or just find a large tent and double it up with plastic. I'm a union laborer and have to build welding tents from time to time. They work enough to keep the pipe fitters happy, should be good enough for you, LOL.

Do tell Yard Dogg as I have a canopy style garage in my yard that would love to be heated at least enough to pull a part every now and then. It is only about 3 feet from my heated garage but it is ever so cold in there. By the way what union do you belong to? I am a Teamster myself.
