Electronic ignition?

I was recently given an 8n.

I mentioned my desire to upgrade from points to an electronic ignition, and 6v to 12v. Some of the more experienced voices here disagreed with my plan.

I've never worked with points before, and my research makes them sound like a common point of failure. Is an electronic ignition more reliable, with less tinkering?

Also, the 12 volt upgrade. I had assumed that it was an obvious upgrade, for lighting if nothing else. Six volt parts are just not as ubiquitous as 12 v. Would I get more reliability and/or cheaper parts if I went from six to twelve?

Thank you.
