My take on the way that glen e comes across is that he is a guy who gets excited about his mods and wants to share all the details with others so they can do similar mods, too. If he only wanted kudos, then why would he give so many details of what he used, and the step by step process? Nah, the evidence shows that he is genuine.You don't care about getting nods from car guys, but you have a thread devoted to just your personal car mods.
He also will say he doesn't care what others think of him, and, if you read enough of his posts, you will sure see that is true, too!
I have come to like the guy in some weird don't-mess-with-him type of way.
