Alpha See Ya?

Kind of a strange name? Stopped and looked at one today and was impressed. A 2005 beautiful layout with lots of storage. There was a strange condition going on with the fiberglass that looked like someone shot it with a shotgun from way out. Little small pea size chips or popping of the fiberglass. Sales person said it was Orange peal? Orange peal I know of is the paint finish not fiberglass issues. Anyone seen this condition before?

I have heard that condition refered to as blisters.It is not reparable except replacing the side panels and that is expensive.

Those little chips are blisters, just like you think. You can fix those you see but more will pop up later. It will be a continuing process.

Alfa see ya. There are several threads on irv2 that note this. You can find them by doing a class A forum search.a known issue on some of these Alma's that can worsen over time. For useless trivia I believe ALFA stood for " a loving family affair"
