Question brakes HELP!

Ok so dumb question. I have done my own brakes multiple times with rotors and calipers. I just put on a powerstop z23 kit with brakes rotors calipers, and stainless steel brake lines. all parts matched and fit fine used the brake lube on the pistons and brake pad plates made sure all my soft lines were tight and snug to the hard lines. I have bled my brakes 12 times I am getting no air just fluid coming out. my brakes are getting tight after pumping them couple times. after you let the pedal come back up it will go straight to the floor again. I have done with car running and not running. start from rear passenger side the wen to driver side rear and so forth starting from furthest point to nearest. I am seeing no leaks what so ever on any of the parts/points it connects. what could this be?

Are the calipers on the right sides? Sounds stupid but i did it before on one of my old cars.
Took em off to do brakes and paint em and couldnt figure out why i had no brakes when i put it back together the next day.
Took it to a shop who realized the calipers were on the wrong sides so the bleeder screw wasn't in the right position.

Bleeder screws should be at the top of the caliper. Since air bubbles rise.

And these work great! http://www.speedbleeder.com/

I guess I am old school I usually snap a picture before I disassemble brakes or such. I have heard of using a mighty vac for pulling the brake fluid through.
