Hi Spyder918 and welcome!
There are a multitude of various options to attach, fix, modify suit components together. It just requires a little SEARCH work within the relevant forum topics. Some are done OT style, others for usage, longevity, flm work etc. I find it best to see what you like and are capable [parts, equipment etc] of doing with nary an issue. Sometimes it's also a trial and error system as after that say, first troop, should you be trooping, that this particular method doesn't work for you.
And you can always ask. Some of us have been doing this for a long whiles now and can offer up bits of advice. Soak up what you can and use the best that works for you.
That said, good luck and it's always nice to meet a new OT Fett.
