Force 4 over at shamrock quay has some nice think pads of scotchbright in three grades of abrasiveness.

But you can get scotchbright from tesco or 99p shops basically it's the scrubby stuff that's on your dish sponge.

Ref to gloss rollers on gelcoat/flowcoat it will give you a very fine orange peel effect on the surface if you use a foam one.

Have not tried a mohair,furry or velour roller yet.

If you do remove the glossy finish on something though with scotchbright it will pick up dirt and stains easier and be a pig to get clean as it will absorb the dirt.

But can always be recut with polishing compound to biting back to gloss.
