Thomas roof raise

I keep reading that a Thomas is not the idea candidate for a rood raise. I have also seen builds where it has been accomplished. I understand there is the issue at hand of the top section of the side walls pitching in 5-6 degrees. This is why a Thomas roof raise could be an issue. Can someone post pics of these issues afterward? I know building anything is possible, but I would like to see ho bad it looks afterward.

Also could you do a roof raise on a Thomas by raising from below the wall area that pitches in? Of course this means more side panel removal and more labor.

What am I missing or overlooking?

You are not missing anything.

It's just extra work to cut below the windows and raise.

It's been done.
