Default Changed spark plug/wires on 2004 pt...with pics

I just got done changing the spark plugs and wires. The guide in the stickies for changing spark plugs was very helpful but I was able to do it in less steps on my pt. First I undid the air filter hose...then took off the bolt front the bracket that is back next to the radiator fluid canister (bolt pic attached). Then took off the five bolts holding the intake manifold off. I used a bungee cord to hold it up on the hood release (as the guide on here said to do). I used a old shirt to put over the manifold openings so nothing fell in. Then I changed the plugs and wires one by one. I ran into an issue with my sockets coming apart when I tried to remove the socket after tightening, so I took some duct tape to keep the socket and extensions from coming apart. This worked pretty good....I regularly use duct tape with my jobs...
Hope these are some helpful tips

Hard to see but it looks like you over did it with the duct tape.
