POR15 has a really good reputation for stopping rust dead in its tracks.  A fairly large number of JH owners have used it on their floors and underpinnings, and as far as I know there have been no complaints about its performance.

For the floor, you're better off having the drain holes wide open, so any water that does get in will be able to drain out.  The carpet can be presumed to be reasonably porous, but you'd have to punch appropriate holes in whatever insulation you choose to put underneath it.  Just avoid driving through standing water that reaches the sills.

For the seats, you might want to consider leather on the surfaces that contact the occupant -- basically, top of the cushion, and the forward surface of the backrest -- and vinyl elsewhere.  This should give essentially the same benefits as all-leather seats but at a much lower cost.
