Depending on how much paint is on the painted metal part you should be able to rub the polyurethane off the painted metal with compound and a buffer. It might be better to start by hand rubbing it first rather than firing up a machine that can cut through the paint you are trying to save.

How do you remove red window paint from white painted cement walls without taking off the white paint?

If the white paint is well-bonded to the surface, and the red is very fresh, a lot of times you can use a sharp razor blade to peel the red paint off the white. If the red is stuck on there, I would use a sanding block to remove as much red paint as I could without damaging much of the white paint, then put a coat of white paint over the area. Next time, get a newspaper and tape it to the white walls to protect the building.
