The 1070 is getting some excellent press. I personally prefer a PJ with lens shift, and at least the 1070 has vertical LS. (...ya still gotta get it centered "spot on" to the screen...)
Sintra is a great choice, and at the price you quoted...a real steal if indeed 6 mm.
You absolutely do want a Black boarder.
You might want to consider the w1080ST (short throw) if that soffitt is at least 5' deep as the 1080ST can do 92" diagonal from 4' - 10", and in any location futher Back the PJ will still have to be mounted lower than the soffitt anyway.
In your case, especially if your going to use a Beamer PJ, you can go with a Simple neutral Gray of a N8.0 level. But you should consider painting the underside of the Soffit in at least a darker, less reflective color in any case. It doesn't have to be an ugly Black....just a darker, flat Gray....perhaps a match to your selected Screen color. It doesn't take much of a difference to effect an improvement over White, lemmie tell ya that!
