By that time, in the Soviet automobile industry, according to the principle “they are getting better and better”, the tendency of universal meaningless copying of available foreign machines, their units and components was firmly established.

Colorists who can pick up perfectly matching shades can be found not often, therefore this method allows detecting the discrepancy of colors. Continue reading
