Wall framing 1971 Gillig

Hey Skoolie friends,

We have a 1971 Gillig we are converting (tiny beluga) and so far major projects we've done: a 2.5' roof raise, insulated and put in the new plywood floors, now we are onto framing out the walls. We decided to go metal to wood for the gap where the windows used to be in order to put in double pane house windows and have unique look and feel inside more like a tiny home. We've started framing the steel beams we welded into the 2.5' gaps from roof raise with ripped 2x4s and attaching with wood to metal screws. We've only gone vertical with the 2x2s so far and not sure where to place horizontal peieces or exactly next steps from here. Anyone done a similar metal to wood framing or have any how to advice?
