is fairly self explanatory. Imagine the outer surface of an orange rind. Kinda bumpy/pitted, "moon surface" looking. On some repaint jobs there may be a small area or two that display these traits. On a really poor paint job it may be present in larger patches.
Not to be confused with the intentional orange peel found on the rockers of some newer cars. This is apparently done by laying on a heavy coat to protect the rockers from rock chips and such.
