Default 03 GP Spark/wire change?

Im planning to change the plugs in my G/F 2003 GP SE sometime soon... I had the plugs/wires brand new from parts store for about a year if not 2 years now... lol But anyway is there something I need to look out for besides making note as to what wires go where? The back plugs don't look too hard to get to.

Ok, so i got the front plugs out but it was pretty hard to get the wires off the plugs... Any suggestions for getting to the back plugs? Removing the front motor mounts make it any easier?

I have not worked on that body much but i do know if your worried about the boot coming off n the metal portion staying on the plug there is a tool made to push the plug wire/boot off so that doesnt happen..

If you remove the driverside top dogbone mount and then remove the bolt from the engine side of the passenger one, rock the motor forward and put the bolt in to the back hole, that gives you a bit more room.

Removing the middle bracket off the exhaust studs also gives you a lot more room. It only holds the rear of the engine cover in place.
