I agree with many others - Remove the BB first.
I treated my Cross-Check with frame saver before I built it up. I can't say as to whether frame saver would damage your BB, but why take the chance? It gets really sticky when it dries, and I think you'd want to get good coverage in BB shell and the thread. The only way to ensure that is for it to be open and accessible. Do the right thing, get it pulled or buy the tools to do it yourself.
