There has to be something in the system not holding. Are you loosing fluid out of the reservoir? Inspected all calipers/pistons for leaks?

We are not losing fluid out of the reservoir. Everything is new including calipers, wheel cylanders, and brake hoses. There are no leaks around any of the connections.

Bleed the entire braking system again. Is the master cylinder new or second hand? If you place enough pressure on the pedal and it goes down gradually, this normally indicates a master cylinder problem. The rubbers can turn themselves inside out, or the bore could be scored. There's really no where for the fluid to go without It being seen some where. You say you can see no obvious leaks and you're not losing fluid.. Sometimes in cars with split reservoirs,they can leak between themselves and you may see bubbles or fluid rising or falling between them.
