[DML] Soft brake peddle

I just recently replaced my calipers and master cylinder. I then used a 1 
man pressure bleeder to bleed the system. While the brakes work, I have to 
pump the peddle once during braking before it gets firm and the car stops 
really well. I rebled the system, which helped a little. But I still have a 
soft peddle the first time I press it.

Is there a special step in bleeding the two piston calipers? It sounds like 
I may still have an air pocket in the system. Or is it possible I have 
something else wrong? The only other thing I can think of is I replaced the 
front rubber lines with the braided SS, while I kept the original rear 
ones. So is it possible the rear ones are expanding too much now? I can 
replace them if necessary, but it's a lot more work I'd rather not do right 

Hopefully somebody else has had this issue. Bleeding these brakes several 
more times will start to get expensive and take a lot of time. Thanks,
