The fasteners can be a pain but when fitting the new frame leave them snug until all are in. The new cowl seal may be fat and when you pull the windshield back it may not seem to go back far enough. You can use the roll bar spreaders front tubes to help. The wiper parts are a little challenging one circlip patience will get it back on have magnet handy.

Did you take off the big plastic nuts that hold the pivots to the frame?..if so you need to use a big Screw driver and gently pry the pivots out of the holes in the frame,then extend the pivot arms toward the outsides of the frame,then rotate the whole linkage ass'y so the pivots are facing up.then you should be able to slide out thru the drivers side..I know. Easier said then done,will require some degree of cussing to complete...good luck
