Hi Patrick,
Before I moved into this G...D... climate I was also completely unaware
such horrible weather even existed. In fact we are having a minor one in
Toronto right at this moment.
As I understand what actually happens it is that if the temperature
from well below freezing to some small amount above freezing and rain
the rain water freezes onto everything it hits. If the temperature at
ground level is just below freezing and that a little distance above is
above during rain the same thing can happen.
You can see the results here.

Sorry I can't provide the definitive answer about the moulding fasteners
but I do have a question that someone may care to enlighten me on.

Living in Australia where in most areas it's open top motoring 356 days
of the year I am completely unfamiliar with what is meant by an ice

Can someone please tell me what happens? What causes it? What do you do?

I recall seeing a film some years back with Sigourney Weaver (Sigh!)
that was set in an ice storm, but no doubt it was all done with mirrors.
