Arrow RJ's IOM - aka DAP-ONE [COTW 12/23/13]

I have had my 2010 2SS/RS IOM (L99) since October 16, 2009. I thought I would go ahead and start my own build thread since several members are doing their own. Mine will probably never achieve "BEAST" status like some others out there, but I'm doing this just to make it my OWN!

Here is a picture with me and my salesman, Jesse Mike, when I picked up my IOM for the first time at Wommack Chevrolet in Castroville, Texas (formerly called Lundquist Chevrolet).

I ordered my IOM around mid-July 2009. At the time, the 5th Gen had been out for about 5 months and was in very high demand. Every dealer in the San Antonio Area was marking up the Camaros as much as $5K OVER MSRP!! Mind you, I was also looking at the Nissan 370Z and the Infinity G37. It was my 11-year old daughter that convinced me to get a Camaro. So, I called up Lundquist Chevy and spoke to Jesse Mike. He told me he would sell me a new 2010 SS at MSRP. I took my family down there and met up with Jesse, super nice guy! He showed us an IBM SS w/white rally stripes. He even let us hear the engine and gave it a few revs! I was sold! I knew I had to have one of these ASAP! The only down-side was I had to order one and it would take about 3 months before delivery!! Well, I placed my order and played the waiting game. That's when I joined Camaro5 and started reading about everything that was going on. I noticed that someone was assisting with tracking Camaro orders by way of VIN number. So, as soon as I got my number from Jesse, I entered my information on C5 and was able to track my car as it was being built and delivered by rail/truck. Here are more pictures of the IOM on delivery day!

The first mod done to my car was the window tinting. I actually had it arranged with someone to do the tinting a few days before I took delivery. It turned out great! The next thing I did was purchase black vinyl cutouts from BigWorm Graphics and blacked out the front and rear bowties to match the black rally stripes.

I replaced the factory exhaust with the Borla ATAK cat back. The work was done by Lethal Performance on May 31, 2011.

I had American Racing 1 7/8" long tube headers installed on August 2, 2011 by Corey at Henderson Performance. He did an amazing job! I told him I would be back when I am ready for my next performance mod.

I've decided to do some cosmetic mods to the IOM, since it's less expensive than the suspension upgrades and cam that I have planned for early next year...

Been away from my IOM for almost a week! I've been in Miami, Florida since Sunday night attending the 2011 IBM Power Systems Technology University at the Fontainebleu Hotel. It's been a great week! I'm flying back home to S.A. tomorrow night. Peace!

I had some cosmetic mods done to the IOM this past Tuesday. My good friend, Lupe, helped me install IOM DRL bezels, front and rear Black w/IOM Bowties, and IOM Tail light bezels...
These shots were taken today at my workplace...Enjoy!!

Thanks! Next mods probably won't happen until the Holidays are over. I am trying to save up to lower the car with some springs and sway bars.
