FYI, if you leave the project alone for the better part of a decade then the Green Glue is going to go bad. Left tube pictures is what I could get out of it. The right tube is an untouched tube showing how much the stuff shrunk. Oh well, I can't say I'm surprised. Fortunately these days you can get the stuff on Amazon, even comes next day Prime as opposed to having to order it. It should be final delivery via USPS and they're generally quite competent and gentle around here.

Yes, it's still sticky. Green Glue never gives up, never surrenders.

I finally have the window plug for the smaller window more or less completed. I've got a bunch of hard drive magnets that I'm going to epoxy in place on the plugs so that when the doors are open they'll stay open. The openings might look small, but that's the size of the window opening so be it. I went through a number of design revisions for these and the traditional window plug just wasn't working for me. I wanted the final design to be able to be opened, and a standard plug was simply too heavy and cumbersome. It's two sheets of ply with GG. The inner surface is primed white to help with heat rejection, but that probably won't matter much as the windows have film on them plus there are blinds on the smaller window and white curtains on the larger window.

I'm trying to document the build of the larger window's panel since the first one isn't shown. The third picture shows most of a panel ready to go. The feet at the bottom will rest on the existing window sill and press up against the window itself. This will give something to press up against so the doors can seal properly. It's just simple ply construction, wood glue and pins, and otherwise nothing special.
