You could channel the body 1 1/2" on the truck frame; but slanting the front clip would be easier. ...if you choose to.

But in any case, the strut/clip join would be a good place for a swan-neck mirror.

What a fun build. I will be following this with interest. I also like the idea of keeping the "old distressed paint"

It might be even more shocking for a conservative hot-rodder while realizing that this truck was turned into a hybrid

Hot Rodders

So far the older guys I've showed it to have liked it. I'm sure when I start cruising I'll get some grief. But hey, you gotta build what you're into, right?

Yup. Give 'em the grief right back. Yours is the more useful thing of beauty, parts are everywhere, nobody has one like it, and it gets killer FE.

See my my car's mod thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape. My fuel economy goal is 55+ mpg while averaging posted speed limits. See my Honda manual transmission specs post too.
