I'm doing Old Rex build and will soon need to attach the shoulder bells. I bought KWD parts and the shoulder bell has an inner and outer part.

I want to attach clone shoulder-bells to the shoulder straps. Should I use snaps or velcro to achieve this?

Should I use a strip of velcro down the inside length of the shoulder bell (as per KWD video tutorial) or attach a snap to the top of the inner shoulder bell Because I'm doing Old Rex, so there's no bicep or forearm armour to attach under the shoulder bell.

Also, is there any need to attach an armband around my upper bicep so the shoulder bells sit straight, or will the KWD shoulder bells sit snug?

Unfortunately due to Photobucket's recent image restrictions, I cannot see what others did in their tutorials for Old Rex builds.

I hope this makes sense.
