First off, I would choose the 25e over the w1070 if you can nail the placement with any precision. 40% More lumen output combined with 2x more contrast is pretty much a given choice to make.

Secondly I would use Silver Fire v2.5 3.0

Thank you for the followup. That was the direction I was leaning since it won't take much more that swapping PJs on the mount for the install. My original question was about the v1.0 of RS-MM Retro I painted the 97" screen for the old PJ. Until I can redo the screen with SF v2.5 3.0 will the older paints (specifically the metallics) be a problem for the higher power HD25e (hotspotting or sparklies)? Instead of getting a new piece of Sintra what is the best way to reuse the existing? Has anyone ever removed the old paint? Can it be done without damaging the Sintra surface?

Running the 25e on low lamp, with perhaps a small additional adjustment in brightness will suffice to hold things in check on your current screen.

You can easily (...and lightly....) sand the existing painted Sintra, spray a few coats of white primer, lightly sand again then cost with SF

If you want to go to the Trouble, all the paint is water based, so the use of a saturated sponge, and soaking the screen repeatedly and wiping thoroughly will eventually remove all the existing paint.

Don't bother...just sand, prime and spray
