Sure ya can! Just leave it yellow, add a periscope (make from PVC pipe), replace the windows with (or frame to look like) round portholes, add silhouettes of John, Paul, George & Ringo in selected portholes. If pulled over, ensure dive / surface claxon sounds and use a PA system to broadcast crew instructions / appropriate sound effects as he approaches.
Too bad ya don't have a jacuzzi like Lapeer, you could blow the water like you're surfacing. . .just wait until he's walking up to the sub (spelled backwards is bus) to blow out the bilges!
Make sure your stereo is blasting Sgt. Pepper music!
If he still wants to ticket ya, just call him a local Yoko (as opposed to yokel).
If ya still want to paint it gray, add a couple missile silo lids on top and nuclear warning signs instead of Beatles silhouettes in the portholes. Large diameter PVC pipe could be made to look like torpedo tubes, front and rear. Add servo controlled lids and watch his eyes open as wide
as the torpedo tubes while they're opening (along with all the appropriate sound effects over PA system)!
OK, I'm having too much fun here with the prescription drugs they gave me after surgery, I better stop now. Man, there's just so-o-o-o-o much fun stuff you can do with a bus!
