Filter system for 12-40mm - will this work?

For my E-M1 and 12-40mm (62mm thread) I purchased the below. I have no idea i this is going to work. Thoughts? I probably should have asked before purchasing it! I didn't have enough cash for the Lee Filter system, probably would have ended up a ton, the Lee 10 Stop ND Big Stopper is around $150 USD by itself.

1. Cokin CBP400A P-Series holder

2. Hitech 85x110MM Hard Grad ND Filters (0.3, 0.6, 0.9) - 1 stop, 2 stop, 3 stop

3. Haida Slim Pro II MC 77mm ND Filter 3.0 (10 Stop)

4. Haida Slim Pro II MC 77mm ND Filter 1.8 (6 Stop)

5. Hoya 77mm Pro1D CPL Polarizer Filter

6. 2 x 77mm Cokin P step up ring adapter (aftermarket) - attach to Haida ND filters or Polarizer

7. 62mm Cokin P step up ring adapter (aftermarket) - attach to 12-40mm

8. 2 x 62-77mm Step up ring adapter (aftermarket) (in case I want to attach ND/Polarizer directly to 12-40mm)

My thinking is I can use the 77mm Cokin-P step up ring adapter for the Haida/Hoya filters then slot it in to the Cokin CBP400A holder.

Reason for going 77mm is the 40-150mm f/2.8 (which I don't have yet) is 72mm, so just some future proofing.

The Haida's/Hoya were expensive at around $60 USD each but they are meant to be excellent quality optically

As I live in Australia, I was limited in choice and had to get everything shipped from Amazon/Ebay etc.
