This is no biggie! Just go to your UV map and stretch it with the ...er...stretch tool! Mine needed to be stretched quite a bit. The UV now looks like this

Just keep stretching it. I like to keep the texture view on in my perspective window. There you will see the art being stretched around the ring until it looks right

Here is the new ring with the body showing...perfect fit

The body has been re-textured with a fantastic 3D Total CD called "Alien Organic". I can't recommend this one enough! Just take a look at the CD. You'll love it. My only tip I can add to this is, don't be afraid to combine texture and different scales. For lack of example, think of an alligator. The pattern on his back is thick and big. As it makes it's way to its stomach, it becomes smaller and more fine. These areas tend to be lighter in color too. That's not to say it the "rule". But the brain will see it as more natural.
