Well....you have those gosh darn "Floods" shining directly down onto both front corners of the screen. The SF accepts and reflects such direct lighting, so it's going to look brighter.

Note the difference in the upper triangular area at dead center that lies just outside the umbra of the Can Floods. Take the same picture with those nasty things turned off, and take it from the distance you took the other shots and I bet it will be much more comparable.

There's probably a lot of perceived difference in shade due to the background wall color.

I will say that the pic I posted is true to the actual color on the board

Oh my, absolutely. The darker base will most assuredly deepen the color, and also reduce gain to at least some small degree.

Besides that, the N/C works out to be close to the same shade as the older 2.0

Wow. Just 18,000:1 Contrast and only 1800 lumen too. Kinda mind-blowin' to think what a Epson 5030 or a Panny 8000 would put up.

Your future looks pretty bright....better get some good



Gotta luv 'dem $50.00 lamps!

That is the mix I used. Very quick and easy to make up. My base though is SF v2.5 3.0 so results will vary. I only had the base up because I had my Wagner 590 set to fire hose and I messed up my original attempt so I sanded it back.

Yucky mixing tool.

Home Depot has this, usually in stock in the Store I believe, and it is much more effective.

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Workforce...M1HD/202251542

The metal one there doesn't stir thinner paints as well as it does the thicker paints it was designed for. It must be run at a faster speed with thinner paint, and that is exactly what you do not want to do with Silver Fire because it whips in air and creates tiny bubbles. The metal can also scrape the Teflon off the sides of that can you have there. Change it out if you can.

Oh how I miss "The Squirrel".

Set the Drill on slow speed, and mix for 2-3 minutes. It's a good thing to first add the Water and Poly, then the silver and pearl....in that order.

All the time mixing slowly.
