Ice, snow, or even hail damage can damage a car’s paint. Hail damage is pretty self-explanatory, with the impact from hail causing dents and dings on the car and chipping the paint in the process in which case you’re going to need hail damage repair. In the case of ice, the damage is often caused by the removal process. There are several ways to remove ice buildup, and thawing them away seems to be the safest option provided you wipe the car completely dry afterwards. However, there is also the option of chiseling the ice away, and this will require some careful application since you may end up chipping the paint away with the ice.
