Now the bottom
This is an Eldorado aerolite. Supposed to have a rollover rating.
Looks like the steel frame around the window is not attached to the floor. It looks like it's suspended in the sandwich. I am assuming the same for the ceiling.

I skinned these windows with aluminum, affixed with 3M butyl tape and self tapping tek screws. Then the weather blew in so the 30ft tarp went back on until the temperature gets back above 40 during the day...

You can cut poly insulation board to fill and fiberglass over. It will look as if that's the way it has always been. You can embed structural wood or 3/4 inch plywood on the inside for places to attach things like shelves,cupboards, or walls.

Arrow

So I took the initiative, removed two of the windows, took all of five minutes, solid metal frame around both windows, cut 1/2 ply to closely fit into area window occupied, 3/4 by 3/4 alum angle screwed into frame so that outer skin of ply is flush, cut out new window rough opening, screwed/ glued ply to alum stock, laid combo fiberglass 2 inches outside of outer skin covering gap, very solid, watertight, will get pics tomorrow, thanks everybody
