Icon9 break line leaking and i cant find it so i give PICS

ive had the leak for about 3 days now and im at a stand still i cannot locate the leak to save my life (quite literally because its my DD!) ive got some pics with red circled areas that show where the fluid is present and a pic of one of the new hoses and fittings that the previous owner installed it does not look like its leaking. this is after I cleaned the engine so excuse the water on some of the hoses under the hood. my ABS light is on but the code just shows a bad sensor
the last pic is where the puddle of break fluid is after the car has been sitting.
if i cant find it im thinking of just taking ABS out of the damn car and not having to deal with it any longer ive gone this long with out using it and im a cautious driver so i don't think i need it unless the majority of ya'll say its a no no. I really need some advice on this im stuck!!!!

Whats that yellow tape on there? Sure that wasn't a fix for a leak that the previous owner installed lol.

your gonna have to take apart the brakeline where the previous owner replaced it. Its gotta be leaking at the joint where the lines meet.

Just a thought; when my old shocks blew up they sprayed fluid around in a similar pattern. Worth checking, maybe it just needs new dampeners

Re: break line leaking and i cant find it so i give PICS

thanks guys ill have to get under there this weekend its not as bad as it was last week for some reason (yes i filled the fluid reservoir lol) its still drivable the breaks just feel a lil mushy and there is some travel in the break pedal but it stops the same
and snowTaipan i know its the breaks because my break reservoir is leaking i dont think my shocks are blown (at least the front ones anyway) thanks for the input though ill keep that in mind to look out for in the future
