I just can't throw cool stuff away!
The 8"pipe extension actually screwed into the front half of the assembly and tightened up nicely. A couple of black tapered plumbing gaskets slide on to help make the transition.

It's just a friction fit right now, I'll head over to the drill press and run a small screw through the side to hold it in place. But here's the look so far...
Now to figure out the grips as well. I'm open to suggestions!
Look for a cheap large flashlight with a rubberized grip, you might be able to slip it off the hologram and onto it. I'll have to see if i can find an example and take a pic.
