This ensures the best results during the various working stages of the outer shell, and gives a balance between shell lightness and shock resistance. The painting stage is a combined automatic and manual process, assuring a high quality standard for surface finishing. The shells have the various colours applied in automated phases, and the graphics are applied manually.
