Well, I think that I got the brake situation figured out.  As per suggestions 
from a couple people I went back out the car the next day hoping that gravity 
had worked and the air bubbles had escaped.  I also checked the brake failure 
switch fitting and it was loose.  I tightened that switch up and then tried the 
brakes.  It still seems like a bit of pedal effort, but this is the first 
manual brake car I have driven, so I am not sure of what the pedal pressure 
should feel like.  The car definitely stops.  btw, some had mentioned the 
rubber hoses failing, but I forgot to mention that I had replaced those about a 
month ago, albeit with the original material (my budget prevented my purchase 
of braided stainless).
Thanks again,
