Default Valve Cover bolt replacement

The previous owner of my 1998 Honda Civic EX-1.6l, overtightened the bolts on the valve cover. This caused the threads on the bolts to stretch and nearly break (one is actually broken off in the top of the head). Would anyone make any recommendations on where to buy replacement valve cover bolts for a reasonable price? There are 5 bolts and the dealership charges $7/bolt. Other than local junk yards, are there any reputable online parts dealers that would carry something like this that you would recommend? And these exact bolts can't be had in your local hardware store.
