Kris is spot on with her post.

Consistency is key here and weathering is no exception. You don't want any one part of your kit to stick out from the others

I've hit a roadblock and that is, I'm not 100% certain how I want to attach my armor. I'd like to use Chicago Screws, but am wondering, do these have to be covered? anyone here have that method for their armor and if so a pic?

Any way of attaching your armor that has exposed heads of any sort you'll have to paint to match your plates.  You can use chicago screws, or another sort of rivet, but that attachment method can be rather...permanent.  That can hinder you, especially when it comes to plates spacing. 

I would suggest industrial strength velcro so if you need to adjust something it's as easy as pull off and replace.  I've got it on both of my plates and have no issues with it.

Yes this is true about being permanent, is your velcro sewn on or adhered via sticky?

Look for the sew in/sticky back velcro. It has the adhesive on one piece only so you can stick it to your armor, and the other piece is clean so you can sew it on. You don't want to run your sewing machine needle through the adhesive as friction heat will jam it up something fierce.

Mine is both.

Adhesive backed, sewn in with fishing line (so it doesn't get caught on the adhesive).  :)
