Repainting a nickel plated Oria GM 0.0 frame?

I have an 80's frame made from Oria GM 0.0 tubing (barely visible longitudinal ridges can be seen on the outside of the frame). I love this frame and would like to repaint it due to the paintwork having numerous ugly scratchmarks. Beneath areas where paint has come off the steel looks shiny - most likely nickle plating (I don't think it is chrome).

Does anybody have any experience or advice in ow the paint should be stripped and the frame repainted? I plan to have it done professionally but am worried that even a professional may stuff up the frame...

I am no expert, but I don't think that a pro is going to screw that up. Are there defects in the plating? Otherwise it's a simple re-paint

I would probably ask for a quote from velocolour
