Brakes - no pressure after rotor/pad replacement

I replaced my REAR rotors & pads yesterday (did the front brakes last fall). Bled them all from rear to front, topped off the fluid. But now I don't have any brake pressure. When I press the brakes, the pedal goes to the floor with minimal resistance. After a few pumps, it seems to build pressure briefly, before losing it again. I've checked all of my brake pipe/hose connections, no leaks. Any ideas on what I am missing (or what I screwed up)?

You still have air somewhere in the system.

Rotors wouldn't cause that, but air in the system would.

Horsey's only advice would be to forget the Rotors and just add new pads.

New pads and old rotors make for perfect adjustment. No need to bleed.

On that note, I have some 'slightly' used rotors available for you Josh.

Btw, I see a NAS 90 parked on the street every now and again when I'm in hoboken. once near the train station, and another time in front of the post office. Has a roof cage if I remember correctly. Didn't see any rhino-lining tho. You know the one?

I see them a bunch here. Color usually helps narrow it down though.

I can't remember if one of the yellow ones had a cage. Pretty rare w/ the cage around here because of garage clearance.

Can't believe you've been here and not hit me up.

I know, it took every ounce of willpower not to come see your collection of soft tops. Next time may be a different story.
