There is a place here in San Diego that will take the metal panels, make exact molds and make exact fitting clear plastic panels complete with fastener holes.

This pic is for my buds at www.cv41.org. I can't crop this pic small enough to fit their site.

When USS midway was decommishioned in 1992, the yard workers at Bremerton removed the stained glass window and stored it in a warehouse. Two Midway Volunteers drove a pick up truck to Bremerton found the window and brought it back to San Diego, so the USS Midway Chapel could be fully restored.

Three shots of ( I Think) the right wing of the F-4U-5 Corsair.  Both wings required heavy rework to get them to look something like original.
