You'll need rod builder epoxy or an equivilent- an epoxy to-glue on your tip top, cork grip, reel seat and hardware for the reel seat.
You'll need a thread epoxy- Threadmaster or Threadmaster Lite (what I like the best) or Flex Coat, Trondak U40, Permagloss and many other brands.
Just for the heck of it, next rod I do will have spar varnish coating on the threads and the rod completely dipped in thinned varnish. A throwback to the olden days when they did it with cane rods.
