'72 250C ignition conversion

Has anyone out there converted their '72 250C points ignition to a Pertronix electronic ignition? If so, how does the car work now and what kit number did you purchase?

I converted a 280SE 4.5 to electronic ignition, and it worked well. If you go to the Pertronix site, they'll have parts numbers for specific cars. They'll also be able to tell you where to order the parts (Pertronix doesn't sell directly to the public).

I asked about the model number because Pertronix's web site did not specifically have my year and distributor type listed. Fortunately Pertronix got in touch with me and told me specifically which model would work. My car was a daily driver for the longest time but lately its been mostly in my garage waiting upgrades such as this.
