99 D1 Brakes

I have a 99 D1 V8 petrol and can't seem to resolve brake issues. New booster, new spacer plate, new proportioning valve, new pads and rotors. Mechanic says brakes were bled properly but the rig won't stop for nothing! Good pressure at the pedal but just doesn't want to stop. Willing to do the master cylinder but scared I'm just throwing money against the wall! Any ideas? Any specifics to the bleeding? I've read other posts and can't seem to find an answer. Also the computer flagged an ABS wheel speed sensor and I replaced that. The error code is now gone. Thanks in advance!

I ran into this once ...(pardon the pun)

My brakes felt like they were wooden brake pads squeezing wooden brake rotors...Fred Flintstone would have been so proud.

My solution was drilled and slotted rotors and Akebono (sp?) ceramic pads....I also eliminated my ABS and went to a adjustable proportioning valve for my front /rear bias....

My opinion would be, a new master would NOT be a waste of money... Also, the booster on my rig was part of the problem a slight vacuum leak made my brakes okay at speed, but weak at idle and off-roading...which is why I sunk my teeth into it ....Proper and patient brake bleeding is also paramount.

Considering STOPPING is about the most important thing a Rover can do...solving the issue at all cost, is imperative.

Another thing most of us do is increase the size of the front calipers with D110's, put's more shoe surface on the rotors.
