Default Need help with building OMP 65" YAK

Guys, I received my kit yesterday. I just want to say that the kit looks excellent. The quality is apparent and is a testament to how much OMP cares about their products. With this said, this is my first full kit. I have rebuilt my ARF trainer in the past, but I have never built from a kit. My questions include:

What glue do I need to use and in what locations?
Exactly how do I use the RIB gauge?
What steps to pay extra attention to so I don't screw up?
What material makes a good Building board? (cheap)
What grit sand paper do I need to get and where to use it?

I'm not afraid to tackle this project, I'm just new to building in general. I have an OS .91 for this bird and can't wait to fly. I'll try to keep everyone posted on progress.
I'm sure that I'll need some more help.

wow this could be a book.
1. regular thin and medium ca for the wings a little yellow glue wouldnt hurt for the ribs when sheeting the wing. some polyurethane glue (elmers pro bond or gorilla glue for the foam work)
2. The rib guage provides an angle to the root rib because you are building a tapered wing on a flat board
3. thinly applying the glue to the foam and making sure the root rib is excatly square to the plan so when you slide it on the tube it meets flat to the fuselage
4. a pc of plywood with a ceiling tile (2x4) makes a good cheap building board
5. all of them 60-100 -150 and 220 for various stages of shaping and completion

shorts answers I know but more specific questions would get more specific answers

i hear the ceiling tiles make good boards, i almost alway have some drywall (sheet rock) around and it makes a gr8 board, holds pins realy well
and also read the directions on the cdrom they are good.
i wouldn't consider a 65" OMP yak to be a good beginner kit but its do-able
