Question Mild Restoration in Iowa

I am looking for a some advice on who/where to go to have a mild restoration done on a Fox Body convertible. My step father and I want to secretly re-do my mothers Fox Body. We are looking to have it professionally done and have no issues if multiple business are needed.

Here is a list of items needed:
Full repaint (replace damaged trim, etc)
New top
Recover front seats (no major tears, but obviously showing age)
Transmission rebuild (front pump seal is leaking)

It is red with black top 2.3L automatic transmission. Nothing fancy, but all original and has been stored for the last 8 years. If anyone has any advice or at least some information on where to start looking that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Where in Iowa are you? There is a shop in Ames that does amazing work. Skunk River Restorations. I have no idea about costs, but Steve does some awesome work.
