Cooper Tune did this for me several years ago. Nice fit and finish, quality set up working as good as new today. Look him up if you prefer to talk about your ideas.

I’m working on converting a 73 Mini 1000 myself.
I’m still in the collecting parts stage so I haven’t gone through the entire process.
