To start with, capitalize and spell correctly. Then, I think that a 1.5" Sch 80 end cap might fit well in 2" pipe.

Uhh, the outer diameter of those two components are almost the same. You mean to say that Sch40 1.25" fittings fit in Sch40 2" pipe.

Get a 2 inch sch40 plug, spray in non-stick spray, and then melt down gluesticks into the plug until its about 1-1.5 inches thick, when it cools down just knock it out of your mould, and bolt some rubber (neoprene) to the frount.
