Fuel line metal pipes

Hello all. I’m looking at the original fuel line components (tank to pump) on my 1980 Sportshatch. There are three metal pipes that are part of the fuel line, the longer two of which I’ve forgotten where they are located (having took them off the car some 30 years ago). Haynes offers no insight, can anyone help remind me how the two are positioned? Photos maybe?

the longer metal peice just goes from the tank outlet(via a short hose) around the front of the tank above the rear axle.

yellow pvc / nylon to front and stops near alternator.

hose down to fuel pump .

short hose to metal pipe up front of engine by top radiator hose and to carb inlet.(via hose on 1.6)

small metal bracket to camshaft cover bolt.

Thanks both. Did make me think that I may have the cut pipe into two when fitting a Malpassi fuel filter, but if one length is installed near the tank that makes sense. I’ll take a look at the fit-up the weekend
