As other mentioned, what caused the problem, (usually water intrusion) can you fix the cause and the delamination.

We got a steal on our Mirada because the Dealer couldn't move it. everyone that looked at it got cold feet when they seen the damage. When we looked at it, I studied it very carefully and decided it was a minor leak that the previous owner aggravated (actually they caused it).

I re-seated the window, replaced the bad hatch gasket, repaired the interior wall.

Interior delamination is a different situation. I think most of us were thinking of the gelcoat delaminating from the substrate, not an interior wall.

The same philosophy applies to interior or exterior delaminations / water damage. If you can repair it, you may be able to make some very good deals. But be careful, don't want to get in over your head

Here is a repair of an external delamination caused by a bad frig access panel.
