restoring an old pop brennan frame

I have an old pop brennan frame that has seen better days. While there is no rust or denting, it appears to have had a coat of red paint put on sometime after the original. I can't tell if it was originally a metallic gray paint or possible chromed, but the red seems to chip rather easily. I wondered if there were any conservators out there that had experience with restoring frames. The frame is exquisite, and I want to be conservative with it, probably stripping and a repaint. Any thoughts? Does anyone have experience with these older frames or can recommend someone who has?
Thanks,
Blaine
