Front of auxiliary fuel-tank on the F-84E at USAF Museum, Dayton, Ohio. Also visible are the tank-seam fairings, and the general arrangement of the formation lights on the front of the tank. Generally, the covers for these lights had the anti-glare paint applied as this one does. However, inspection of photographs leads me to believe most of them were installed with the separation line vertical rather than being aligned with the edges of the tank-seam fairings as this cover is installed.
