Default rebuild front caliper now brake does not feel right

i rebuilded my front caliper today. removed old brake fluid from the reservoir and replaced with the new fluid. Bleeded air all 4 wheels (rear right, left front, left rear and right front). the brake worked but it does not stop immediately as it performed before the change. it takes a little longer to stop. should i re-do the bleeding.

Yes, air in the system is the most likely issue. Bleeding the brakes on my SC2 a couple of weeks ago, I had to go around the car about 7 times before it fully worked the air out.

Sadly, I then blew out a brake line later that night.
