Can anyone suggest where to purchase the electrical needed to operate hideaway headlights for a 68RS mine do not work. I checked out "retro-electro.net" and they do not have any products available for a 68. Can't afford a heck of a lot. Help.

Classic Industries in california have a great selection of parts for RS hideaway headlights. I ordered all the parts that I needed from them.

I have a 67 RS and as far as I know the 68 is supposed to operated by vacuum, but if yours is electric then they are great people to deal with, Cory.

They are not electric, the doors are vacuum operated. There are some slight differences but basically they are the '69 system which is depicted here... www.camaros.net/techref/articles/ftecref001.html
