These are simple enough to make them in the shop. The seal can be made out of ordinary sheet of neoprene.

The main purpose of that seal is to keep exhaust gases from entering the cockpit floor area. So fitment to seal the spring gear leg closely is desired. (You'll notice the grey streak of exhaust stains from the prop whirlwind leads that stain straight to that area on the left side.)
The secondary purpose is to keep water out.
