Fixing the hydraulic clutch

I've got an 83' 110 with a 3.5 V8. Recently I suddenly began leaking clutch fluid and found the culprit to be a hole in the copper line between the master and slave (caused by rubbing of the air filter housing against the line).

I ordered from Rovers North a new steel line, as well as flex line (figured I might as well change all the connections between the master and slave).

This seems like a super easy fix once I get it. Just replace the lines and bleed the system, right? Anything else I need to be worried about? Clearly I'm no mechanic, hence the desire to be sure I'm not underestimating it here.
