Ever seen this before?

Has anybody ever seen this or know how to get it off? I have tried simple green, brake cleaner, brasso, stainless steel polish, chrome polish, aluminum polish. Nothing has worked.

Aluminum Polish like Mothers or a high speed polish pad on a hand held grinder with jewler rouse the brown one ? if it is really bad with pitting sand it with really fine wet or dry sand paperwet and then polish it will look like a mirror

I don't believe it was clear coated, unless it comes like that from the factory.
