Ice chipping paint

I’ve got a pretty fancy paint job and looking to keep ice off the props from completely ruining it on the nose. Is there a way to cover it or some other solution I’ve not thought of?

Model: Baron 58P

Sky Harbour Aircraft in Goderich, Ontario has an STC for Baron ice plates. They are aluminum backed with some sort of polymer that is supposed to be very effective against ice damage. https://www.skyharbour.com/

SRS also has and will install their ice plates. Good stuff.

I think Sky Harbour has been out of business for years. I bought and installed ice plates from SRS. They are primed aluminum and would need to be painted to match your scheme. I was told by a paint shop that the ice plates will not stop ice from chipping the paint, but they provide a clean edge so that you do not need to repaint the entire nose if/when it happens.
