I have a Jobox brand toolbox that I have had for a few years. I am finally starting to remember why I put it on my old truck. I want to get my tools out of my back seat and keep the mess out of my cab. The box is in rough shape and there is what appears to be a clear coat flaking off the metal. I was wondering is this a clear coat? Could I peel this layer off and shine it up? Is there any way the box be cleaned up to look like new? Any tips or info on this would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pics.

It is an aluminum layer and or a chrome plating depending on the brand. I would have a line ex do it up, or else buy a new box, or just basically leave it as is, or last option is sand it down and paint it up yourself.

X3 with the Line-X. We did try years ago taking a old toolbox (looked like yours) and sprayed a aluminum wheel cleaner on it and then scrubed it with a soft brush and rised with water. It took must of the old stuff off. Then we polished with aluminum wheel polish and it came out pretty good, not perfect but better than before. Test a spot first with the wheel cleaner before applying to the entire box.
