Two pieces of advice:
1. Forget about BB, you're wasting your time and money.
2. Reset everything, read a bunch here, think carefully about all the cals that have been posted, and go to work.
My reason for 1 - I have a skill-set that would be similar to a good calibrator but in another filed. A national company decided to offer a service a few years ago that meant training people to do what I do. The skill level of their people is a joke (I played spy a few times to find out.) The primary reason for the low skill was the limited training they received. I should add that clients seemed pleased ... when you don't know anything, it's easy to be impressed if you're the trusting sort
My reason for 2 - That's what I did (before paying for a real calibration) and my results (D7000) in a few areas, using nothing but my eye, some discs and combining a few cals here (after testing many more) were better than your posted "after." That's pretty frigging scary.
