Unhappy Exposed Outdoor Recepticle Boxes

I have purchased a 75 year old house which has several old outdoor recepticles. They are not grounded so I wish to install GFCI outlets and new covers. But all the recepticle boxes stick out of the shingles about 1/2"! Any ideas on why this is or how to fix them?

Thanks

Richard

No! They are indoor metal boxes.
