Check the hose fittings - sometimes they have a cutaway that is supposed to be under the
the banjo bolt head - the non-cutaway face on the fitting goes to the caliper....if the hose is installed with the fitting reversed, this can lead to non-seal type situations that apparently need multiple washers to sort out. But its because the hose wont lie flat on the caliper.
Oh my God, what's happened? I don't know man...I just got here myself!
