I'd think some thinned white and some fine white aggregate .. even crushed table salt .... Dip a stiff brush in and pull back and "spray" it on. Some experiment is definitely in order to get the right consistency for the effect you're after.

I've had my Infiniti below during winter below in mind for a good salting too.

I'd use some Tamiya acrylics in a variety of very light grays thinned to a very runny consistency and shoot it through my airbrush at low pressure close to the model in a spattering pattern.

AK Interactive sells a good product to wheater in white.
Look in the net for invernal cammo in order to get some useful tips, usually are done in tanks, but it may works for you.
If you want some texture you can use marble podwer.
Hope this helps.
