    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this but I decided to add electric ignition to my old rusty stove. I ground all the rust down and then sprayed a rust convertor. Once that was done I made my brackets and pieced together the system. Well worth the effort to me as now I don't have to go searching for matches and a lighter while holding a pot.

    Where did you get the parts? That's a great mod.

    I got the parts off amazon.com. I used some cheap electrodes, a weber 3 burner ignitor, and some aluminum stock that I got from rural king. Rest of the hardware was just laying around the shop.

    Thanks for the info. I'm going to look at doing this myself.

    Do you think it would be helpful to make a write up for this?
