What is the correct routing of the RS headlamp vacuum hoses on a 68? I assume they go in front of the radiator support, how do they get there from the relay? Do they go through some hole in the support panel or do they go around it on the right or under it? I would think you would want the Tee to be right in the center so that the hoes that go to the canisters are the same length. If so does the larger supply hose drop down then come up vertically to that Tee? I was thinking of fashioning an "L" just before that Tee so that the supply hose can be tied up to the support as well and out of sight as much as possible.
If anyone has any clear pictures that would be wonderful. Thanks all.

They route through the radiator support under the vacuum can and the T's go on the support just like the drawing I gave you. There are some holes that the plastic retainer straps go in.

Is there supposed to be a hole in the radiator support? I don't think I have that. I believe mine was replaced once upon a time and a non-RS may not have the hole. The picture shows the proper routing but now I'm wondering where the Tee's should. I'm guessing right in the center of the radiator support so as to make the red & green hoses to each actuator the same length.
Thanks CA420.

They just go around the end of the rad. support.There is no hole. The Tee's will end up about the center of the core support.
