So I know a lot of you in the Northeast are running into this same problem if your car was outside the past few days, it is a block of ICE! There is half an inch to an inch of ice over the entire car, will this hurt my paint as it begins to melt and crack/slide off?
To get to work today I just turned the car on for 20 minutes or so (after having to pour warm water over my door jambs to get in) and scraped the ice off of just the windshield, rear glass, and front side windows. I wasn't about to do anything with the ice on the body panels, but as the hood heated up a big piece cracked and slid off. Should I just let it melt and slide off by itself hoping it doesn't scratch anything, or attempt to get it off some other way if that's possible??
