Junkyard/Salvage Yard Parts Paint Marking removal

Not sure if this is the right section or not. I've picked up a few pieces for my build from various salvage yards and they all use some sort of paint to tag their items (I guess so they don't get other yards parts returned to them?).

Anyway - how should I go about removing this paint without damaging the part. Worst case, I can completely strip it with aircraft stripper and repaint the base piece, but I'd prefer to avoid this if possible (these are primarily external engine parts).

Not sure if this is the right section for this question. I did a search, but it didn't return anything pertinent - I might be using the wrong terms though... Mods feel free to move...
