56 carb conversion to electric choke

Has anyone converted their 56 Birdís carburetor choke to electric? If so, is it simply buying a replacement electric choke cap? If so, what did you buy and where did you source it? Did you then cap off where the heat riser tube fastened into the carburetor?

Good source here.

Biggest issue is getting a constant voltage to the unit with key on.
