Exclamation Please help! Photo or diagram request for engine vacuum lines ('79 300D)

I got a 1979 300d for $1000, its really nice. The only problem is that the vacuum lines are all unplugged and some are missing. Ill post pictures of the madness. I recently ordered a main brake vacuum line with the two T's, the one this 300d has are both broken. Here are picture of what its like now. I was wondering if anyone can post pictures of how there vacuum lines are plugged in? That way I just copy how yours are. It should be easy if anyone could help i'd really appreciate it. Thank You

Because as you can see in my picture all the lines are incorrect or missing lines.

79's are different from what I have, but perhaps some items are the same.

Brown/violet is going to the shut off actuator.

Brown is going to the ignition switch.

Yellow & yellow/red is for the door lock system.

Green/yellow is climate control.

Not sure about the red line, in Euro's that's for the headlight adjustment.
