Auto restoration needed for mold

I'm not sure anyone can help with this, but here goes. We picked up our car in Basel and found the inside covered with heavy mold. It's an Aston Martin convertible. We've been able to clean it, but it still reeks of mold. I've been told to get an estimate for restoring the inside and replacing the top. Any thoughts on where to start? We live near Lucerne.

Re: Auto restoration needed for mold

Thanks Grumpygit. This is an Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante (2001). It's a beautiful car with about 20,000 miles on it. I'd love to find some way to get it back to the condition it was in when we dropped it off in Miami. Unfortunately it sat in a container there for three weeks in the heat and humidity. They also leave a window down on shipped cars so they can get in through the window to drive the car out. The absorption bags (if used at all) were obviously insufficient. Hopefully someone out there might have some helpful ideas. We have a friendly and helpful garage in Greppen (Pirnstil Carrosserie) that is close to our home. I'm hoping they can help. The AM is just a unique car.
