The foam rubber seat bottom cushion is available from a supplier in the UK at about $100 per seat, plus shipping.  These are frequently auctioned via eBay.   Otherwise you could fabricate your own from high-density upholstery foam, or from the seat cushion used in some other British car.  Either approach would probably be nearly as expensive.

The rubber strips that support the foam may be available from your local boat or auto upholstery shop, or you could try aftermarket suppliers of the JCWhitney class.  Failing that, any heavy duty strapping, such as used in lawn chairs, might serve.

A lot of JH owners have found it less troublesome to browse the local wrecking yards and purchase seats from some later model car, even though the installation of such seats is likely to present its own set of challenges.
