Did you use dielectric grease on the spark plug boot to plug connections?
Come on, Man!

Of course not.

I had my knees on the top of the core support and my right arm on the head to hold me up. Came right out. This is a little easier if you are younger I would suppose lol.

No idea why you would put your right arm on your head. In the rest of the country we would have used our right arm to grab a hold of something to help steady us. Just another weird California habit I guess...

My mistake, the head of the engine. Specifically the passenger bank right above the valve cover.

Not sure how the engine bay is for NNBS, but for NBS sometimes it can be easier to pull the plastic fender wells if you need to work on something down by the headers. At least for changing exhaust header bolts that's a good way to access them.

If going over the top/fenders just do some stretches before hand (step stool may be required as well) :D
