So, the results!

Image
Missed seeing it up

Image
Hoses manifold

Image
No leaks at the suspension leak return and breather

Image
Minor leak at that 11 nut

Image
Everything dry from the rear returns!

Image
Detail of the area

Image
PS Return ok, no leaks.

Image
Octopus area, dry.

Image
Brake hose ok

Image
And there, my main problem: HUGE leak at the brake doseur when i press it, looks like a cascade.

Incredibly, only two leaks weren't from the hoses, so it passed the test!
