Hi people

I am going to be making my own screen, using official screen material. I will buy it off the roll, stick it to an MDF board and then trim with a 3" black (stage velvet) boarder.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any spray adhesives that would stick the PVC screen to to MDF, resulting in a perfectly flat and secure surface? The boarder will go on top of the screen to help hold it on, but this is only a secondary measure.

Also, what screen colour/gain should I go for to match a Sharp XV Z9000?

Cheers Kane

Spary Mount from a artist store. This stuff lays down real good and it allows you to pull the screen up to reposition it if you have too or if you change you mind down the road.

I would be concerned about the weight of mdf as a screen base, and you will be limited to a 96" wide screen. Instead, I built a laminated plywood frame for my screen. It is strong, lightweight and absolutely flat. If you have a table saw and can rip plywood strips in a straight line, it is a snap to build. I attached the official screen material, Da Mat in my case, using double sided carpet tape. Check out this thread
