M-16 Haltrack Ammo Chest Stenciling?

Hello,

I'm currently building Dragon's kit with the Griffon upgrade (5 months and counting...talk about small parts!) The decal sheet includes yellow and white stenciling for the M2 Ammunition Chests. I think this would look really cool on the model, but I can't find a single period photo that shows them, and I've found quite a few that show none. I've searched this site, googled, and looked at the Squadron, Osprey and Hunnicitt books. The only stenciled chests I've seen are on recent, restored vehicles. I also noticed Steve Zaloga's build doesn't have the stencils.

As I mentioned, I'd love to add them if they could be accurate. Anyone have any pics, and if so, would yellow or white be more likely correct? I have the Archer Transfers stencil set and it only includes yellow.

Thanks for any help!

PS - If anyone is interested the build log is over on Armorama, I prefer this site, but a full step by step log didn't seem to fit any of the forums here!

Mods, feel free to remove the link if this isn't kosher to post on ML!
