I suggest you wait until your instrument is fully assembled before you glue the pipes together. Believe me, those pipes won’t come apart once you glue them.
The gluing process is quite simple, just go get yourself a can of ABS or PVC glue and follow the directions. Remember to work in a well-ventilated area, since the fumes may cause nausea, vomiting, bursting into flames, bursting into potatoes, loss of the ability to see into the future, heartburn, diarrhea, mood swings, gender swings, swing dancing, uncontrollable attraction to dogs and/or people with fanglike teeth, reduced IQ, and random acts of feces. — No wait, that’s Sham-Naise-Verter!!!
This I’m sure will be interesting, since PVC and ABS repel paint with a vengeance. What you’ll need to do if you want to paint your tube instrument is sand it down, apply a primer coat, sand it again, apply another coat, then sand, sand, paint, sand, paint, sand, sand, paint, paint, bash, bash, bash, sand, paint, bash, sand, bash, sand, paint, paint, lather, rinse, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, ……………
And then you can go nuts with your favorite paint.
