Re: Brake pedal travel
you missed a few stages from above (i am assuming they are the same calipers as 156) - after refitting you must pump the pedal, engine on I think, 10-15 times (to reset the self adjuster in the caliper - i did mine about 30 times to make sure as you cant over do it, just under do it!). Then and only then do you adjust the hand brake. Then all should be fine.
So try changing the brake fluid to start in case its air, save some work - if not then remove the pads again, push back the piston a little, refit and do above steps.
Hold the rear end slide....don't run wide!
