salvage/dismantler yard markings

GOOD MORNING...IN REGUARDS TO THE MARKS ON THE USED PARTS..
IT IS PUT THERE SO IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WHEN RETURNING THE PART THE YARD PEOPLE KNOW IT IS THEIRS.......
SOMETIMES CUSTOMERS REMOVE THE MARKINGS BEFORE THE PART IS TRIED,,AND THEN TRY TO RETURN IT IF IT'S WORNG-MISTAKE...
THERE ARE SEVERAL TYPES OF PAINT,AND INKS USED..

LAQUER THINNER..OR BEST,,"FINGERNAIL POLISH REMOVER" WORKS GOOD..
IT'S ALREADY CUT WITH WATER.....JUST DON'T USE TOO MUCH..OR TOO LONG ON PLASTIC.....REMEMBER..OLD GM'S USED LAQUER PAINTS,,FORDS WERE ENAMEL.....

ChevelleSS_LS6 if we want to melt somebody's driveway now we know what to do.

muahahahahahahaha! *evil laugh*

and the next day those involved in melting somebody's driveway will die due to a combination of liver, kidney, lung, heart, and sphincter failure with the ends of our shirtsleeves melted off into one with our newly melted off limbs.

Now, I don't think MEK is a good idea. Leave it to the pros to use. If it can melt asphalt, I wouldn't want to bother with it. And this is coming from a guy who took a big bottle of medical grade n20 and a lawnmower, taped the end of the hose inside the air cleaner cover, fired the engine, and cracked the valve.

The Dutch Easy off oven cleaner.
try that

66GMC Brake fluid is another one. The paint lifts, wrinkles, and wipes off.
You have to let it soak for a while though ... overnight?

mitchellsk Normally if I tell them I won't be returning it they wont mark it. They mark them in case you need to return/exchange it.

Thanks for all the replies!!

I have some other items that need to have this marking paint removed, so I'll try the other things suggested here and post up the results.

docvette Doc here,

If you can get some, and you have no rubber / Plastic parts...

Methyl ~ Ethyl ~ Keytone (MEK) will remove ANYTHING..

Be careful with it, wear gloves, Goggles and a respirator..that Stuff can kill you..now and later.

Do it outside with good ventilation, and Do not spill it on your driveway..It will MELT asphalt.

daveh WD-40 will get it off. Put some on let it sit and come back later. I have good success almost 95% of the time.

junkyardjeff I would make sure its good before you remove the markings as they might not want to make it right if its removed,I usually do not remove the markings if the parts are going on my daily drivers due to my laziness. Jeff

home brew Lacquer thinner on a Q tip. If you are very careful and only use a little at a time you should be able to get it off. Just dab in on the tag and wipe it off. You will have to experiment with each tag but you will get good after a short while. When you get most of it off you can try using rubbing compound and then polishing compound for the last little bit. Take a few of your old parts to the places where you bought your parts from and have them tag them and then practice on those pieces. If you screw up you can always repaint the whole thing. Good luck.
