Assy Drawing of Weldment, Best Practice?

When I do a weldment or assy and want to do a drawing with the assy on the first page and the parts on the subsequent pages, what's the best way to do that?

 

So far I've tried creating the drawings for the parts separately then pasting them into the assy drawing (I've done this both inside Solidworks and from inside Adobe Acrobat Pro). Doing this is SW is OK because it keeps the part associated to that sheet, but it does not bring in the properties from the part, it's using the assy properties.

 

What is best practice when doing this kind of thing? And if I'm on the right track, how can I associate the subsequent sheets with the part's properties instead of the assy? I played around with the sheet format but didn't have any "aha!" moments.
