Inspection Requirements. Every pattern applied using the projection method must be fully inspected in
accordance with Section III, Inspection Procedures. No random sampling is permitted.
4-8. MANUAL METHOD
The manual application of color boundary lines is considered to be the least accurate and least repeatable method of CPP
application. This method uses a modified "free-hand" approach for applying the color boundaries with the aid of various
pattern point guideline techniques such as grid layout, transfer of scaled points from CPP drawings, etc.
Degree of Accuracy/Consistency. The manual method is the least accurate, least repeatable application method.
Therefore, its use is greatly discouraged. It is considered a last resort' method.
Inspection Requirements. Every pattern applied using the manual method must be fully inspected in accordance
with Section III, Inspection Procedures. No random sampling is permitted.

appropriate interior area, if available, which is visible from outside a locked or secured item.
Safety and Instructional Markings. Markings such as tire pressure, fuel type, and fill level will be in letters no
larger than one inch. Markings directly related to troop safety, such as wrecker boom capacity and danger zones, must be
evaluated by safety personnel.
CARC Markings. Equipment with data plates shall have the word "CARC" painted in a conspicuous area as near
the data plate as possible. Painting shall be in block letters, as large as possible, not to exceed one inch. All major items
