I am really thinking about changing out the Tach that I have in my 68 with a new aftermarket one that I haven't even bought yet. I have never installed a tach before and need a few tips on what to expect when the time comes. How hard is it to do "by youself" without making a total mess of things.

Install is real simple. Most Tachs have four wires: Ground, Keyed 12 volts, coil wire and light wire. The hardest part is finding a good place to mount it! Most people put it on the column with a big hose clamp. I installed mine in the instrument panel many years ago before the Covan and DSE pieces were available.
