Default Building vac ports into mold

Does anyone have any pictures of molds with the resin inlet/outlet ports built in? I'm making a mold right now that's large and flat, without any real contour. I'd like to build the vac ports in so that I don'thave to mess with running as much line. Need some ideas...

I don't have any photos I can show you, but its pretty simple. You can use off the shelf parts. I usually use a pipe nipple and glue this in to a hole in the mould, from there you can attach other fittings to accomplish what you want, or just attach the quick disconnect for your vacuum to plug in to.
