Get this out!

Posted in the detailing section but thought more ppl would see it here...

found this stain in my paint on the hood of my car and i cant figure out what it is or how to get it out.. i tried clay bar, degreaser, iron-X, rubbing alcohol, even a slight bit of betalink remover, i cant feel it, its completely smooth. any idea what it could be or more importantly how to get it out?!

Try some moderately strong rubbing compound.

It looks like something acidic ate through your clear coat.
As company already mentioned a moderately strong rubbing compound will be needed most likely.

It actually does now that you mention it nuke, but why wouldn't it come out in the steps described in the beginning I wonder...
