Martin,
That is the nature of retirement. It has been almost five years and I truly don't know how I had time to go to work.

You guys are starting to scare me! I'm 5 to 7 years away from retirement and I'm so darn busy right now it's scary

If retirement is worse I may just continue working....

Busy, yes. But in a good way.

On the retirement topic, it is sort of like being on a roller coaster for 30+ years and now that the ride has stopped, the ground feels a little shaky under my feet. I still am getting up before sunrise but now there is no schedule other than what I set, and today was starting the work that I have been putting off for too many years.
I also resurrected my old Yelo Sub website inside of my Projects page.
It is a bit rough and may not work with smart phones but here is the link:
http://theouterlimits.ws/projects/YeloSub/

So a brief history of the Yelo Sub. I bought it in 2001 and used it for music festivals. I would play videos and host bands all running off of the generator in the Yelo Sub.
It was a 1977 20' Argosy that came in the normal colors of tan & brown. That was a bit to bland for festivals so my first adventure, I brought some tempera paints and this is what happened:


Although that was fun, I wanted something a bit more coherent for my theme and it turned to this:

Most of the rest is in the web pages along with more photos.
For those wondering about the torpedo tubes on top, when I would do shows, I had a 18x20' canopy and I stashed the poles in the tubes. I took them off late because it made the thing top heavy and sharp corners got dicey, especially since I had it overloaded with audio & video gear.
Someone in the other thread asked about the bumpers. To get the special holographic effects I bought some self stick foil online and it had a real nice effect on the curved bumper. I also used some in the trim molding slot all the way around the vehicle. I just used some mini-blind slats and stuck the film to them.
The down side is that they did not fare well in the sun and they would need to be replaced every few years.
That is all for now, I need to get back to yard work

Wayne, thanks for sharing the history of the Yelo Sub!

I'm sure you have a lot of fond memories from all of your travels with it
