    Hi All. Was washing the van the other day and noticed several small paint bubbles on the lower corner of the bonnet. Definately not rust. Looks more like a paint adherence issue. Will take to Fiat dealer next week but just wondered if anyone else has had a similar issue?

    Hi Juleshe. I had something similar on my Ducatto. Not rust but small paint imperfections.. Took her to a body shop who resprayed cab and doors. Cost £400....... Not bad, after all she was 15 years old!!!!:roflmto::roflmto::roflmto:.

    P.S. Sorry, no offence just thought you might find it humourous. Hope you find an answer to your probs....:giggler:

    Go to the local skate park, frown at the kids and shout, 'don't you little arseholes touch this van while I'm gone, get a job you lazy bstrds!!'

    They'll have those paint bubbles off in no time.

    Otherwise, chill. On a Fiat that isn't a defect, that's character!!

    Just been to the pub to discuss your problem. Apparently, the Italian spray painters are too macho to wear eye protection so after a while their eyesight deteriorates. The bubbles that you have found are not paint blisters, it's Braille for, 'missed a bit'.

    I thank you, no charge.
