Is it padding or foam? If it's just padding, I'd think the
upholstery shop should be able to source something.

If it's the foam, I still think the upholstery shop should
be able to help you out. Having watched too much of Boyd
Coddington's American Hot Rod, I've seen his upholstery guy
take foam, use an electric carving knife to rough shape it,
then sand it down with a small palm sander.  I'd think any
good upholstery shop should be able to do the same, so you
wouldn't necessarily need the OEM foam. All it takes is
money. :)
