Ebay projector headlights - H1 bulb holder

I have these on my car, installed by the previous owner: Ebay projector headlights

The last owner had swapped the H1 halogen bulbs in the high beam reflectors for H7 HIDs. When checking my headlights, I discovered that the bulb holders haven been removed and the HID bulbs are just jammed into the openings.

I would prefer not to fart around with aftermarket HIDs of questionable legality anymore, and would like to go back to halogen. Trouble is, I don't have a bulb holder to put the H1s into.

Do the reflectors use the same bulb holder as the projectors? Does anyone have any experience with replacing the bulb holders?

If so, I found many example of these (link), which appear to be plastic, and look like they will fit: If I can find a safe way to attach a negative spade terminal so it touches the base, will that work?

Alternately, does anybody have broken lights sitting around that they are willing to pull the bulb holders out of and sell?

Any other thoughts?
