In case you haven't already found them, I highly recommend the keypad
replacements from Texelec:
She does a really nice job on them. I replaced the pads in a Tandy 6000
keyboard with them.
I've tried making my own foam pads, but had inconsistent results. One batch
worked fine in a TRS-80 Model 2 keyboard, but the next batch hardly worked at
all in the Tandy 6000. At $24.95, the Texelec pads are hard to beat.
