HZ armrests and scuffplates

Hi,all...
Been after interior armrests and scuff plates for Hz for a while now(low priority) and rare spares haven't carried them for a couple yrs now.
Have found 2 places that stock armrests recently...Better autorubber,mentioned here recently...and Kingswood country.com.au. ..so that base is now covered.
But wondering if any place has scuff plates (either new or rechromed) for sale.
Cheers

EFI on a grey. Woops I mean electronic ignition..... My bad.

Hi guys.
Been a long time since I've been on here. Had a bit of a search for the info, but didnt really find what I was after..

I'm wanting to know what the steps involved would be to put electronic ignition on a 138. I'm rebuilding one for a FJ ute resto. I figured the efi would make timing issues etc a lot easier, and give it a better spark?
Or would remapping the original dizzy be a good option, with some decent plugs and leads? I was and wanting to keep it period style so if efi is a going to be a hard egg to crack I guess I'll throw that idea out.
