Default Kadet Senior question

I am building my first Cadet Senior and have a question about the cabin windows.
It seems to me that the cabin window frames are going to be a trick to get them covered after the windows are installed. Has anyone covered the thin. ply frames before installing the windows to them? Just wondering if anyone has a better method than the one in the booklet. Thanks for any advice.

I recall some people building the plane..I think they just made all the wood come out flush around the frames and covered it ...using clear monokote over the windows instead of glued on plastic. Add your colored film and trim like normal.

I have glued frames without plastic windows. There is enough frame visible from inside to glue windows afterwards. In four precise cut pieces ofcourse.
