I removed the metal cover as advised, flipped the projector, and rested the front part of the frame on a 2x4 bar covered with some thick towers and the plastic tail part on some thick pillows. The PJ then went up to the tall wood stand with little hicks up using the motorized Chief mount. There are more work to be done, however, as the PJ didn't behave too well: I encountered some video card problems, some displayed picture problems and some PJ setting problems to be worked out. Bottom line: The picture with a 1080p signal via a DVI card was, well... suck, like a 2nd generation VHS tape on a 7' wide screen. It may need some professional help, but we'll see how these go after some self-help first.
