Does anyone have a good diagram of the 68 RS headlight vacuum hose routing and installation. The instuctions are very poor with the repro hoses, the Factory Assembly manual is good for some parts but not others and I did a search in hear however no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is from a post a while back that should get you in the right direction.

The dash switch only adds vacuum (when pulled out) or takes away vacuum (when pushed in) from the relay switch. If you look at the relay switch when off the car you can see that the small hose connection is used to pull the internal plunger up when vacuum is applied thus allowing the main vacuum which enters via the Yellow hose to the Red hose circuit and the actuators ( in theory) should open.
Now all instructions I have seen show the Red hose connected to the back of the actuators. This is WRONG. Red connects to the front and Green to the back. If in doubt use a hand held vacuum pump and this will show you what I am explaining.

Standing in the front of the car the "T" off points should be: Green to the left and Red to the right like the crappy drawing shows.
