Looks correct to me, slight tension keeping the bolts from vibrating anti-clockwise. Lefty loosey, righty tighty. Which, BTW, does NOT work on driver's side stock wheel nuts on a 1956 Plymouth, which has left hand threads on the left side. :-)

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
