Engine Painting

I have a 92 Trophy that I am planning to slowly put back into standardish, good condition.

The engine paint has definitely seen better days, with the original silver looking pretty tatty. I guess I'll be dropping the engine out sooner or later to have the frame powder coated, so I was wondering what would be the best way to approach this without stripping it back to the crankcases, vapour blasting and repainting.

I've heard of folk masking off all ports and sandblasting, but I'd reckon there's a bit of risk there, so it's end up taking a wire brush to it.

Has anyone done this?
