Best of luck,

Pretty sure, without going out in the snow to look that the paint has flaked slightly, possibly to undercoat. I'll stick a bit of gaffer tape over it until I can get it looked at properly. Probably need to wait unti the New Year now or possible longer if the weather doesn't get any better.
