Default Exhaust Tip Replacements?

Apparently one of my tips fell off earlier today, i was wondering if anyone has any reccomendations for something new that lends itself to the bonneville, or if i should just get a stock tip at the junkyard

Well Im guessing the stock tips are welded so I would just cut the tips even and then put on some new ones.

The stock tips aren't welded. When you get a new one, drill holes through the bumper and use bolts to hold the new tip in. I nearly lost one too before i did that.

As for aftermarkets,

My tips were attached to the pipes from the factory using clamps from the factory. I replaced my stockers with ones from PFYC.com. If I could host a pic I would post it here to show.
