Pipe is 64 dia, appears to be bigger front to back as it is cut at an angle, trim that will fit over 64 dia will fit.

You are not taking a true measurement, it is cut at an angle the sharper the angle the longer it will appear top be, if it was cut square across it would be and is 64mm dia! 50 years in engineering, trust me!!

You could cut it straight and fit a nicer tail? It's only mild steel so will cut like cheese compared to stainless.

You may have to trim the plastic surround as it'll sit higher, but would be worth a bit of effort.
