Hood Ornament

As I get my truck ready for paint, I'm going to take a stab at re-doing the hood ornament.

The chrome has badly flaked, causing the aluminum to oxidize. That's relatively easy to fix.

Does anyone have any idea where to get a replacement insert? As I tried to remove one of the inserts, it became apparent what 33 years has done to the acrylic and it shattered into a million pieces.

I'm not beyond epoxying a picture in there, just curious.

I'll be uploading a full video of this process, but would like some advice on the decal/insert.
It followed me home, honest...
Newly acquired 1986 GW. 4” (I think Rusty’s lift).
Needs interior work. Smells like a refinery on the outside. Relatively rust free.
