I know they make a tubeless specific version - the C24-TL .. are there any problems converting the CL to tubeless?

What do you all recommend to get started? I'm thinking of picking up the Stans notubes kit and a set of Hutchinson tubeless tires. I'm not sure what width rim tape to get though..

If anyone has some experience on this I'd appreciate it if you chime in.

thanks in advance!

I converted some Ksyriums with the Stan's kit....the 19mm tape worked, so that experience should be the same for the 7900s

Don't run Stan's sealant in the non-tubless versions. The ammonia in the sealant will eat away at the rim and ruin them. There's a thread here on the subject. Do a search and you'll see examples. You can try running Hutchinson ProtectAir or maybe Caffelatex, but DO NOT RUN STANS!!!
