How much are the OEMs? i think i'll do the same
Idk their like $40 bux for the pair. You can search your local honda dealer in they have a parts catalog.. off their website.

And the stud balls are like $6 bux..

^If it's not fitting just dremel the edges of the hole to make it bigger. But I'd scrap the mounting bracket on the hood and do it this way.

Here's what I came up with after your suggestion...
