DIY starter kit??

Hi, just bought an cheap(7), yet semi-broken, electro 35 GT.
I did this just to have a camera to disassemble and practice basic cleaning and lub. Now i need some tools to work on it, disassemble the lens, screw drivers, etc.
I'm always on a budget so, what i'm looking for? 1 or 2 good tools that last or several budget ones?
What is the minumum need for disassemle the electro 35 and what kind of lub products i'm going to need?

Thanks

This "pair of needle nose" are pliers?
Could you post a link for an example of this?

Tks

Alcohol is a good general cleaner for removing light seals, Rosonol zippo lighter fluid for cleaning shutters and glass cleaner for cleaning the rangefinder. Also white vinegar to
cleanup battery leakage in the battery chamber oh and buy lots of Qtip swabs.
