Default 306 Brakes

Hi
I have major problems with spongy brakes despite bleeding(1ltr) of fluid through them.Prior to this I have changed,rear shoes and cylinders,front pads and Master cylinder. When bleeding I started at the rear left and finished on the front right. Any help would be very welcome as I have run out of ideas except for maybe back bleeding the system?
Thanks Biggles

If i remember right you start at the offside rear then finish at offside front.

Are you getting any seepage anywhere? Might be worth getting it on brake testing machine (found at an mot centre) to check the efficiency of the brakes.

Failed mot twice for those little buggers!

Yup - balooning - failure of the reinforcement in flexi-pipes - hard to spot by yourself.
Still possible to have air in there somewhere.
