"need" :)

Assuming it's A New Hope TK,
For approval: Must be permanently closed on both ends with the appearance of a cover strip. Glue, no velcro. The width of the cover strip must be consistent on the entire arm.
For Centurion standard: Must be butt joint construction with separate cover strip on top.

What you have out of the box is overlap assembly, which isn't proper for A New Hope. You can't get centurion without modification. You can get approved with that overlap as long as it looks like there's a coverstrip to the GML.

Parts to the left look unequal.
