Ignition Advice

Hello, I have an 86 Spider. Have done much of the routine maintenance but now running a little rough. I am guessing its the ignition because its the only thing I did not replace. I assume we have points/condenser on these cars? How difficult is it to replace items on these cars? I have done points/condenser on other cars. I notice Vick sells an electronic distributor with new coil for $200. Any experience with this? how difficult is it to replace the entire distributor with the electronic one? I can find distributor cap, rotor, but not the points and condenser. I realize the electronic would probably last forever but $200 as opposed to $50 for traditional ignition parts is a big difference.
