I missed you didn't want to re paint it Billy.
In that case you MAY have more to do than you think Mate!
Specially if you don't want to take off the A-frame! ...Its not the stripping off the old paint which is an easy fix...Nitromorse will soon get the job done without any abrasion.
Use a wooden or plastic scraper to remove the paint when it bubbles up/off the A-frame.
Covering up the Engine Deck and Tubes completely is a must!
Or it'll soon do some some serious damage.
After you've removed the paint it will all depend on the state of the Frame...ie if it was polished originally...or just painted after manufacture.
One of the MAJOR elements of the high cost of SS A-frames IS the polishing!!....which takes a considerable length time and no little skill....AND Can't be done with the Frame in situe.
So all depends on the state of the Stainless once you've got the paint off...which is the easy bit.
If you're lucky it may be pretty much ok with a lot of shine still left...in this case a good dose of elbow grease and some Autosol metal polish will sort it out!
