Hi Guys,
Just wondering if anyone here has attempted converting the Ford Aeromax 120 kit
http://www.eddylende...evell 07245.jpg
into a more modern Sterling heavy truck such as the AT9500?http://media.sandhil...A7Ar6DZKoFXBg== I am not an expert on Sterlings, so don't be too tough on me. I happen to have one in my stash, and am always looking for new cabs for projects. Any suggestions or guidance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The Aeromax 120 used the Louisville cab originally introduced in 1969. The Sterling used a newer Ford cab introduced in the mid 90s and carried on to Sterling. While the two share a family resemblence they are considerably different. It would be quite a stretch.

What Leo said. The cab used on the Sterling was the 'new' Louisville cab, which was introduced as a 1997 model.

Some Sterling models would be neat though.

Sterling did use a rebadged Aeromax as well, as the Louisville. Unfortunately the older 1970-96 L series shares none of the sheet metal of the 97-98 Louisville / Sterling and the Aeromax shares little with the medium duty truck.
