6 Volt Positive Ground CDI

Here is the start of the project. I'll be using a Tiger SST CDI case and make new end plates to mount the transformer and perf board. Ordered all electronic components except the storage capacitor which I already have. Plan to mount the power transistors on an aluminum plate that will slide into the case like the original.

Case, end plates (to be remade), perf board, storage capacitor, in/out cable, and mounting hardware.
