funny you should ask, i was just doing that today. check into "corvette panel bonding adhesive", bairs corvettes has it for $21 a quart + shipping. it mixes with a catalyst. don't prime the steel ahead of time, bond it first and paint it later.

PS- it's black bond #2, part #SB002. www.bairs.com

Blast the steel tubing first for texture, clean well, then prime it with a quality epoxy primer then glass it within the epoxy's recoat window and the bond will be excellent.
