Hope brake seals leaking

I have just replaced all the seals in my Hope DH4 caliper but it still leaks? It just keeps contaminating the pads and disc now. I inspected the pistons when I took it all apart and they all looked fine. When you pull the lever you can see a small amount of oil circling around all the pistons? They were supposedly the right seals and they fitted fine, nice and tight. Any ideas???

    you damaged them or they are the wrong ones....

    Or is it just residual fluid that is just sitting there and needs cleaning away.

    It could well be one of them. I will take the caliper off again and check the seals and like you say, just clean off any excess. Cheers!
