  Just admit it'll take a lot of time, and mask them up.

  I cleaned up mine really well, and then sprayed them all black. Then
I masked then by hand, and sprayed a dull silver.

  Takes a long time for all the masking, but the results look great. I
have images on my page (in the tagline).

  Since you didn't ask for my opinion, I don't think any newer LBCs
look right with wires. MGAs and TR3s, sure, but MGBs, Midgets, and
TR6s and things just look wrong to me. Oh well.
