I do beleive there was a post talking about the same thing. Look through and see if you can find it. Most fiberglass companies sell a tilt nose kit as well as a few others. If you can't find the previous post or any other information send me some mail or reply on here and I'll walk you through it.

I've done a couple. Make sure you have a solid hinge point. Tack it together first and tilt the nose. This way you see what you have. Do you want the bumper to tilt with the nose? Do you want to cut the dogleg of the fender? Watch how the wire harness reacts when you tilt. How will the radiator free stand?
Just a couple of ideas.
