While changing the right ignition lead on the left engine at outstation; I inadvertently left off the igniter shroud and clamp. Air carrier's part numbers involved XXX and YYY. WX was wind and rain. I put the parts in my tool bag to keep from blowing away. During my double-check of my work (was only technician on job) I failed to catch the shroud. While cleaning wet tools next morning found parts and called maintenance control and notified supervisor.
