Brake Troubles w/ a 450 SL

The brakes were fine on the car. I then changed the front subframe mounts, steering gear box, tie rods, vacuum modulator, and two check valves in the vacuum system. After putting the car back together and bleeding the brakes (had to remove the brake lines to do the subframe mounts), the car had no stopping power. I have since bled the brakes twice more, and even went to the extent of replacing the pads and rotors (thought I may have gotten something on the old pads).

My problem still persists. Am I missing something when it comes to bleeding the brakes? Could I have altered something in the vacuum system after fixing the other vacuum leaks that would cause this new condition?

HELP!!! I am going insane!!!!!!!!!!!!
