Yes, you overexposed according to the lightmeter by 5 stops, and you are about 2 stops from reaching under 0.10 density in your results. So a 3 stop overexposure according to the lightmeter will get you the 2 stops you need to reach the toe.

Don't worry about whether you zero on clear air or B+F. As long as you keep the information (for example noting B+F in your records), the math to convert from one method to the other is "addition".
