Using two-part Epoxy with Live Steam

Just a disclamer, I am NOT talking about using anything besides hard solder on the structural joints of a boiler.
I was wonder, I have a few detail parts (air pump and a turbo generator) I would like to attach to a engine I am working on, specificly to a wrapper I made. The wrapper is too thin and too soft solder the detail parts. Also I can't attach them with mechanical fasteners with ease. What I was thinking was to use a little of Loctite's to part epoxy (has a operating range in the area of (-40-400F and is waterproof) to attach them to the wrapper. Does anybody have experience with this? Thanks!
