The glass shop never tried that method.
It's a little late now as I managed to get it on with a lot of effort.
The top was simple enough as it comes it two parts and both halves slide in quite easily using silicon spray.
The sides require some effort for the bottom half as I was able to slide the top halves into the top corner pieces.
The bottom was impossible without cutting in half and then sliding both halves.
This is the order that used,
1) slide the upper top half starting with the left side starting from the outside corner,
2) slide the upper top right half starting from the outside corner, (include the little gap cover with it),
3) slide the upper half on the left side trim (driver's side in North America) and work the seal lip using a typical hard plastic trim tool.
4) cut the bottom trim in half, (too much of an arc trying to slide the entire trim length)
5) slide the left bottom half starting from the middle going towards the left bottom corner,
6) slide the right bottom half starting from the outside corner towards the middle,
7) use the trim tool to work the rubber lip for the outside 1 to 2 inch length,
8) slide the right hand side trim up to the to right hand corner (start at about the middle),
9) work the rubber lip into the trim lip using the trim tool for the remaining length.
10) fold the little tabs on each corner to lock them into place.

It's doable after the screen is installed, but it takes a lot of effort.

I had my windshield replaced on my 1971 Coupe and the glass installers were not able to reinstall the chrome trim. In fact, they were damaging it as they tried various methods and tools.
I told them to stop before doing any more damage to the trim.
Does anybody have any tips and tricks on how this is done without damaging the trim?
I did not find anything on the tech wiki for the trim re-installation.
Any suggestions are more than appreciated.

Does anyone know as to which electronic speedometer sender from other Nissan transmissions would work for the 63A?
I want to convert to an electronic speedometer gauge and was wondering if somebody else has tried this before.

I found a nice little trick in getting that stubborn plate off. If you use a 50/50 mixture of Dexron ATF and acetone and apply it around the entire perimeter of the plate and inside each bolt hole for a few minutes, it will easily come off with just a light tap.
The acetone really helps to break the old sealant. I tried different break-free products and nothing worked except for this 50/50 mixture. Don't risk breaking that plate by forcing it. Use the mixture and let it work. If it doesn't come off within a few minutes, reapply the mixture in liberal amounts. It really works.

Thank you so much for the information.
BTW, I found the shop manual for a 1979 200SX (S10) that has a complete section on the rebuilding of the 63A tranny.
The file is way to big to attach.
Maybe I can email it to you instead and then you can post it.
Let me know how you want to go with it as I'm sure others would appreciate having that for their reference.

Anyone have the replacement part number for the front seal on the input shaft either from National Seal or Beck Arnley or any other seal supplier?

You and I would have to wait in line for them.
These 1200 coupes just don't age in their body lines.
A great looking car from any viewpoint.
I had a 1970 Mazda 1200 Coupe before getting the Datsun 1200 coupe.
The Datsun had so much more torque and power as compared to the Mazda.

Sweet. Gotta love those orange 1200 coupes. They just look great with superb body lines. Nissan should reintroduce the 1200 coupe keeping the same body style. A new retro-coupe for 2020. We can only hope.
