You sure are staying busy
I agree, even my no stress work helping a friend is too stressful, he's been by checking progress three times now.Being an amateur mechanic is much more fun than being professional.
Take it easy, contemplate the job, fabricate a part or a tool, wait for deliveries without stress, be satisfied.
A logical view of bleeding the system, but you are still having issues. Maybe trying something different could have another outcome.2 bleed ports and I use the top port. If air was trapped in the system, where would it be? And, wouldn't bleeding 4 to 6 ounces of fluid per caliper get it all out?
I think our warm weather is gone for the year. Our highs tis week are your lows.I think he said yours are about the same as these . . . . what ever that means.
It didn't really show much.
Maybe some dialog would have helped.
Hot out there. I've been in the engine compartment prepping for paint. It's 86 out in the shade, much hotter under the hood. By 7:00 it's supposed to be 74 but too dark to paint. I guess I'll have to start at 6:00 tomorrow morning. 56° at 6:00 it will be 30° hotter by 2:00pm. Should only take an hour.
Air will usually collect at the highest point of a sealed system. Maybe try cracking and bleeding the lines at the actuator? Or at least fill them up by directly pouring in fluid if there is air space.The actuator is located about 2 feet higher than the calipers.
That's why I was thinking reverse bleeding would work. There is an 8" hose from the actuator to the steel line and I've cracked it there and got no air.Air will usually collect at the highest point of a sealed system.

Something like burping the transmission fill/dipstick line on a truck. (I know, poor example but you get the idea.)
