That got me thinking what about some super fine (#0000) Steel Wool? I don't know much about these scouring pads from this article. Would the Steel Wool I mentioned produce the same effect? Is their a chemical I could purchase and wipe this thing down that would eat/remove the gloss? I've thought about spraying the glossy area with Plasti-Dip, but it's winter time and I have no where to let it dry, so I'm thinking "try something else then paint it when it's warm again"
Please if you guys can link other threads from anywhere about similar fixes, do so. I'd really like to gather some information before I start gouging into this shiny crap
I don't think you will get very good results with steal wool. Even if it s very fine the result will most likely be uneven and ugly. A spray would potentially give better results but if that's not an option then I would just wait. As for chemicals you could try acetone. Its strong stuff and will take paint strait off. I have used it to strip paint of car parts. I can't tel you how it will work for plastic as I said its strong stuff and could potentially damage the plastic.
This seems like the best idea. I don't know jack about sandblasting and obviously don't own one. If I find someone locally to do it do I need to be like "use x settings for 10 mins etc" or just be like "yo sand blast this, thanks" haha
Edit: interesting enough my dad just ordered one of the enclosed ones similar to the one in your first post for his office. So apparently I can use it at will. Now, tell me how. haha!
