Question Installing a plastic window insulator kit

Our living room has a dual pane, three section older wooden window that doesn't keep out the cold -40 deg Celsius weather (Saskatchewan eh!). Ice builds up when it is this cold (the ice is about 1/2 thick on the bottom of the window. Windows dimensions: 48" x 75".

My questions:

1. Any advice / suggestions / comments / tips on installing a plastic window insulator kit on this window (heat shrunken type)?

2. We have 3 rolling down blinds that are screw mounted to each of the inner frames of the window. How are we going to apply this plastic and still use the blinds? The plastic has to be applied on the inner window casing doesn't it?

If you want to use the blinds, then you have to remove them, install the plastic as close to the window as possible and then re-install the blinds.
