Did you put new banjo washers on when you installed the lines?

What brand of lines are they?

Is there any discoloration near the crimp connections that would lead you to believe they're seeping?

Did you use the factory banjo bolts or aluminum ones?

Are the aluminum ones longer and bottoming in the master cylinder or calipers before they're fully compressing the washers?

Did you check the banjo bolts for any hairline cracks?

Were your brakes good before you swapped on the lines?

Lastly check the master cylinder for bypassing.
