new owner 1984 spider

Hello,

I am the new and happy owner of a nice Spider 1984 metallic silver. I bought it today!. I was dreaming about this specific one when I was 18 since there was a Alfa garage in from of my high school in France. I now live in Ontario (London), Canada and finally got one for my 50 th bday. The car is not perfect (but this will be boring) but I am relatively handy and would be glad to make it run nicely. it has 95k miles and is coming from the US.
In the past years I restored fully other Italian beauties: Lambretta scooters from 1957...so I don't have much experience with cars but I am not scared to sweat!
At this stage, I am reading posts related to the spider and I am looking to find-get-buy the repair manual for this specific model. any tips to get a digital version of the 200 pages repair manual would be very welcome.
I am looking forward to exchange on this forum
Francois
