So I've been brought on for a gig on monday to cut and install some hard gels on the outside, first floor of a fancy antique-ish house. While I've cut quite a bit of plexi in my days working at a frame shop I've never actually used Hard gels and I'm looking for any thoughts on how to affix it to the outside of these windows minimizing(to nothing) the effect of the windows frames. Any advice welcome, thanks.

push pins
tape( paper),
velcro,

If you add a layer of painters tape to the wood to protect it you can use snot tape, or butyl.

Follow the lead of the Key.
