That stance, oh lawdy! I have a pic some where of a '55 F100 that had substantial body work done. They lifted the rear fenders to sit flush with the bottom of the body, raised the front fenders to the same height and cut the necessary amount out of the hood. They got rid of the side steps and it laid body when aired out. I think something like 400 hours went into the body work before paint was done.
Ever spit it out rather than swallow it?
Enjoy it while you can. One day you might be complaining about NOT getting random pop-ups in the morning.
