Exclamation Need Mechanical Help Wit My Brakes!!!!

here's the deal, my buddy brought his 2004 wrx over to do a 4 piston front caliper upgrade. we bled them thoroughly but the pedal still goes to the floor and no brakes. MC works fine but i sprayed some windex where the MC and brake booster meet and on the bottom of the flange of the MC i saw air bubbles. we tried sealing it off, still leaking. don't know what else to do and an extra hand would be great. anyone in the vb area that "NO ****" knows about turning a wrench. I myself am a fully certed mechanic but i am stumped, tired, pissed and a little hung over from last night ha. so please help. text or call 7327799798

We figured out the issue. My dumb butt put the calipers on the wrong sides ha. Real stupid mistake but oh well. When I get angry with a mechanical issue I don't think of the simple issues
