I'm doing the same, and everything is done apart from hooking up the brakes.

My kid just bought the correct hose-cutting tool, which in retrospect we should have had years ago.

I've got the very recent latest GRX calipers and an ancient pair of Di2/hydraulic R785 levers (they came with post-mount calipers, which were essentially relabeled XT from 2014, but the rear was incompatible with the new flat-mount frame, and the adapter on the fork looked ugly).

I'm hoping this will be fairly straightforward, but I can try to document some of it as I go along if you think it might help.
