you can just buy those packs of ice, let it melt in the bag and then stick it in the freezer so it all freezes all together into one block. :D

fyi... i've never tried the above method in the video myself.

That's quite brilliant! :thumbsup:

Wish I'd see that sooner... collecting the car from Chips Away later!

Peddy, possibly a stupid question...

Do you keep the ice in the bag using the above method? Don't see why the car being wet would make any difference, but I never know.

No, you'd remove it once a big block. i just suggested getting bags of ice so you can easily make it into one block and not have to find somewhere which sold blocks of ice.

This is not just ice as in frozen water though. That would melt and might not be cold enough.

Liquid Nitrogen is described as dry ice.

Great video!

you could use an empty ice cream tub to make a big block, simple, and you end up getting to polish off the ice cream!

nice :D

You need very cold 'dry' ice to do this though.

Your car doesn't remove it's own dints in winter even at -5degC afterall :D

You need it to be very cold and localised...

Not sure where you would get this in the UK, but my wife uses it at her labs... would be cool to try :)
