Upgrading a 6018 to a 6018LQA

Recently I added a Bradco quick attach plate to my 6018, and it's been a huge improvement in its utility around the house. Being able to switch between a small bucket for digging, a big bucket for moving material, and my pallet forks has made the tractor even more useful than it was before.

Recently I got the itch to go the next step and add front hydraulics to the tractor to run an auger. The girlfriend likes that it'll make planting a lot easier this spring, but let's be honest, I'm just excited for one more toy to play with šŸ¤£.

There's a ~7yr old thread of @bknight187 converting his 7020, but those photos were all lost to the Photobucket purge (except for those saved by @sdunt here Ingersoll 7020LQA), so I'm starting this thread to document the process as I go. Hopefully 7 years from now they'll still be available for other people to use as a reference.
