Default Substitute for Trinity body cushions

well, it seems that trinity/epic no longer make body cushions. i need a near identical replacement that is available through tower/great-planes, horizon-hobby, or HRP-distributing, since those are the suppliers that my LHS deals with.

anyone know of anything that would work? maybe something not from a hobby shop. has anyone seen anything like this at a hardware store or home-depot or lowe's?

Geez, some people would waste money on anything. Do yourself a favour go to the nearest rubber product outlet and buy a length of sticky back foam for the same money or less and you'll have cushions for the next eight generations. You'll get a choice of materials, hardness, thickness, etc.
