It is really impossible to obtain a permanent bond to metal with fiberglass. One of the arguments made by builders of fiberglass cars using wood reinforcing is that very point. Wood will absorb the resin and will form a much more permanent bond. Metal will absorb no resin and the bond is on the surface only.
