Yeah I'll keep quiet on that front. I couldn't live there too many things that are backwards 😂
Man come on over. We'll take you to a gun show and you can grab an AR or AK, a 1911 and a few Glocks. Buy a few acres in the country. You'll love it.

I'd get the Bondo body mesh that gives you a good surface to mount the Bondo to. Paint matched to your code, and do a fix. Maybe take 3 hours and an afternoon.

You'll have to pull the wheel well to get up in the fender, but it'll look much better. The mesh is cheap and the paint won't be too much...

Try to lower the badge. Won’t cost you anything to do and is easy enough to undo.

It isn’t like you’ll be parked by another Hellcat anytime soon and someone will notice.

Assuming there is one on the other side as well, I would just cut the head badges off with some dental floss and drop them both down a bit. Still sucks, but no worse than putting another badge on the fenders. I hate over-badging...
I agree - 90% wouldnt even notice - unless you have two Hellcats sitting side by side... it's inexpensive and less noticeable in my mind (although a supercharged emblem could serve the same purpose - even if a little overbadged)

If you really want to get it fixed right....and I mean a great job done.....go to a custom motorcycle shop, or a good metal fabricator that builds/fixes custom motorcycle tanks. I have seen these guys do tank repairs by tig welding and not mess up the rest of the paint job or warp the metal. They usually know someone that can do a great job of spot painting the area and you won't be able to tell. Remember, most custom bikes have custom paint jobs on the tanks and no one wants to have them completely redone when they ding a tank with a gas nozzle or something else. Plenty of vids on YouTube of this repair process.

I still think that if you lower the emblem just enough for the emblem to cover the hole, that it won't be super obvious to most people.

Find someone to 3D print you a badge with a backing to cover the holes.

"SuperCharged"
"6.2L"
"You'll only be this close when I'm parked"

...or something to that effect.

The guys I knew in SoCal had a way of using dry ice to keep the surrounding area cool while they tig welded the repair area. I'm no welder so I don't know all the ins and outs but I watched in amazement at it happen.

I've been around some bike builders that to call them craftsmen..would be an Insult..simply amazing...

A good friend of mine has a body shop and I’ve seen some pretty amazing stuff they can do with bondo. Little holes like that would be super easy. I’d personally change both panels though

The only sticker I consider putting on any car I own, is an American flag sticker - on the rear drivers window preferably.
Zoom in - even blue Dodge truck has it in the background (both sides there - not the Honda though - it isn't mine)
