Sounds like a great project. What are your restoration plans? Stock, resto-mod, wild/custom?

If I may, I would suggest you might also consider Hammerite rust cap paint. While LineX is a great paint and a good choice for a frame, I would tell you Hammerite is a better choice. The main difference between the two is dirt particulate adhesion. Hammerite is 30% glass particles. Which makes it very hard and durable, after currying and very slick. This makes it very easy to keep clean.

i would highly recommend Hammerite as I have used it for 50 years.

I'm impressed. Last Indian has so many little tricks. I definitely can learn a thing or two from him.

Last Indian.I was told the samething from my buddy that owns a 65 GTO. It looks amazing. It was done last year. I will be using Hammerite instead of the Line-X.

Good choice, but just be careful! It is a product that carries potential risk. The toluene and other aromatics are both breathing and skin absorption issues. Wear gloves and a mask if you work in a confined space, not outside space. At least wear gloves if ventilation isn’t an issue. And if you spray, which I don’t recommend, all the above plus protective clothing. 

Believe it or not the whole underneath of the Indian, car in the picture, was painted with a 1/2 high quality brush, 3 coats! The first coat will look a little hit and miss. The second starts to build volume and you’ll think you’re painting contact cement & the third goes on fairly nice.
