Hi Mark - Leave the hydraflush in the system for at least a 1000 miles. Clean the filters before and after and also bleed the brakes. To bleed the rears, put some weight in the boot, wedge the brake pedal against the seat with a stick and have the engine running. Bleed until you see clean fluid. If the bleed nipples are reluctant to turn, give them a sharp tap on the ends before applying too much pressure - they can easily snap. With the wheel off, do not rely only on a jack - use a stand as well.
