i can barely make out in this video that there are holders or whatever they are called for the 3 fuel tubes and 2 brake tubes near the end of the protective channel
that mine does not have from inspection and prying down the channel a bit to peek
so either the car did not come equipped with those or the Toyota dealer that did the new brake lines did NOT reassemble the car properly
how do i find out if those are supposed to be there or not
it looks like #8? in this diagram

finally some nice warm and windy weather this weekend, almost to 80 degrees, its been in the 40s most of the past week
nephew is doing suspension stuff to his Sebring and cannot assist me and see if he can easily & safely reach the inlet hose clamps at the fuel tank, i am on the fence if i need to get that hose new for the new filler neck so the seal is tight

The salt monster won this battle with the filler neck
A few gentle rubber mallet taps made it rain

No perspective. I can't tell where that is, but I thought the fuel door release cable was routed on the inside under the plastic trim. This could be the parking brake cable.

I found the drain for diff here, but honestly could NOT locate the fill plug at this angle

Where is it, behind this piece? How you get at it behind here?

You're getting warmer. Go a little down from the drain plug in the picture then up in the real world between the differential and the cross member. It's several inches up on the back plate of the differential facing the firewall.

I saw it the fill plug when I had that front left wheel removed couple weeks back!! But from this underneath angle I cannot see it yet and that is about all the further I can squirmy under on my shoulder before my other shoulder starts getting stuck under the bottom of the car and I cannot move but just one half arm with the elbow pinned on the concrete

Made it this far today,
Luckily this bolt is high grade and will not snap easily or at all
But still drizzled nutZ lube all over, which is not just for tight nuts!

Here where I am at in the inspection phase of fuel lines
I have located the 3 #5s and the #4

And Currently confused with #6... There was nothing there but a downward sticking bolt
Still need to look at #7and #8 I recall one was missing or both were!
