The camouflage painting need not be exact or carried
into corners. Small gear, wires, rigging, and areas permanently in
shadow, as under boats, etc., need not be painted with the camouflage
colors. There is no objection to exact or careful painting which may be
desired for the sake of good appearance at close range.
All bright or shiny objects, no matter how
insignificant, shall be painted, covered, or removed.
Glass windows shall be covered or removed, especially
during the day in sunny weather, and at night when anticipating searchlight
discovery. Insofar as conditions permit, similar precautions shall be
taken on airport lenses.
