Suggestions Needed: Maybe a hood ornament?

All I recently modified my exhaust and installed a free exhaust tip. However the exhaust tip came off of my buddy's golf cart. He had it mounted to be funny. It was mounted with a bolt drilled through it. I got the inside hole welded up; but as you can see in the below pic not the outside hole, as I didn't want it to have a large weld spot.

Anyone have ideas on something cool to mount over the hole?

Use your creative side and give me ideas.

It does need to be heat & impact resistant.

Thanks ahead of time!

Trying to picture how it would look on your quad, but what about a mack truck or jaguar hood ornament? My buddy mounted a jaguar on the front of his 2001 and it's pretty funny.

How big is the hole? Thread a spark plug into it and add an old plug wire. Tell everyone its the igniter for your afterburner.

I know the "VOICES" aren't real but they have some great ideas.

I like this & may just go that route. Now I need an old plug wire.

Anybody else as I'm going to start modifying this in the am if not.

I did this to my old hotrod in high school. Used a spark plug in the breather pipe hole in my valve cover.
We were goofing around one day in shop class and added the plug wire. A little while later another student walked past, noticed it and asked about it. I told him that it was a supercharger and man this thing hauls azz whenever I kick in that ninth plug. He was like REALLY, WOW . All my buddies in shop had a good laugh.

How about a simple pop-rivet to cover / plug the hole?
