Looking for build name?

Some of you may have been following along in my not so rust free Blazer. I ended up keeping it and am going for broke (no really I am going to be broke).
Anyone have any suggestions for a build name?

Due to disability I am having to pay for 90% of the work.

I purchased an LS3/4L70 GM connect and cruise package.





Truck shop gas tank with tanks Inc. fuel pump I installed.





Here is how the Blazer looks today.



Frame, Tin Works trailing arm crossmember and engine stands, engine cradle and trailing arms are going out to be powder coated satin black. Not 100% sure if I will go to aftermarket upper and lower control arms or powder coat my stock ones. That can be done later. I want to drive it a bit and see how it drives?

Willwood brakes

As low in the rear with 2" drop blocks and whatever springs needed for no C notch, 2 inch front spindle drop and whatever coils will make it level.

Front and rear sway bars QA1?

Brakes booster will be a hydratech hydroboost. It was supposed to take 60 days and just found out today it will be at least another 3-4 weeks.

In the end this is the color I want (close to it) with hopefully a 1968 front clip (think I have one lined up, just need a core support) but have not seen it yet? without the chrome trim on the front.



Darker than this?

I have to admit some of those are extremely funny, but not a good name for the Blazer or build.

Thanks made me smile. I don't do that enough lately!

Build name and "maybe" Blazer name?

Rust wasn't free, about $25,000 and counting.

And I am easy but not cheap (or free).
