Alright, I've been doing alot of research for the past few weeks. I think I have aquired almost everything I needed to complete the project.
Projector: BenQ W6000 $999 at Frys
Screen: Sintra - 60"x106" for 120-122" screen - $112 local distributor - free cut to size.
Products for Silverfire v2 3.0:

Liquitex - Buy 2 Get 1 Free @ Michaels - $30 for all 9 bottles.
Polycrylic - $17 @ HD
UPW - $13
4 Yards Velvet from Hobby Lobby - $36.
~22-25ft border from HD to frame velvet around screen about $22.
Theatre chairs electronic recline- The computer in the corner will be replaced and station the receiver/av equipment and wire through the ceiling to projector via hdmi
Here are a few pictures of my room and theatre chairs. The air hockey table is for sale so ignore that Also lights in middle will be removed and eventually replaced by ceiling fan/track light that isnt so bright.
Room from a distance. Projector will be mounted from ceiling behind the right pillar you see in this picture. Will be mounted from 14-15' back from far wall.
Image of the room from the right. The sintra board will go on the wall with the built in grid. Going to paint this wall darker and also paint the trim contrasting color. Grid color will also match ceiling and possibly rest of the walls in this room.
View from Left- Sintra board is almost exactly the size of the four middle squares in my grid on the wall. It just barley misses the grid by 1.5" on one side. Room is approx 18x15 with the 18 being the width of the wall with the grid. Ceiling is 10', but as you can see room is very open.
Working on painting the back wall first probably a dark slate/gray color and contrasting color on the grid. My first issue is deciding how to mount the sintra. I can't mount directly to the drywall as the grid is on there pretty solid and I feel like if i removed the grid it would tear up the wall as it already is so I plan on mounting the sintra on top of the grid.
Im contemplating mounting it with industrial velcro. Putting it on the rear side of the sintra and along each grid already on the wall. Would this support the board + velvet/wood frame? Grid is between 1/4 to 1/2 inch off the wall. I'd like to avoid nailing into the sintra and keep the 120-122" full size screen.
2nd Idea is to mount a couple extra pieces to the grid to support the border of the sintra. First mount some trim pieces similar to what I have to the wall and then glue the sintra along the edges to the wall.
Ive taken alot of MM's advice and will be going with silverfire 3.0 on the screen and will be getting something to block the windows, even though this will be mostly for weekend/night viewing.
So basically, first step is what advice would you give me on mounting the sintra with velvet border to my wall as that will be my first step after painting the wall behind it.
I've compiled this to do list
Step 1. Paint room/ceiling (SW has 40% off paint so will be getting this done this weekend)
Step 2. Hang Sintra
Step 3. Mix & Spray Silverfire
Step 4. Mount velvet trim
Step 5. Ceiling mount projector
Step 6. Hookup and wire av/speakers.
few more minor things and then calibrate & enjoy
Here is a final few pics of a complete view of the room for reference. Sorry kind of out of order and taking too long to stitch together into panorama. I have a complete Polk Monitor 70/40s(surround & wall mounted) and cs2(with mount as well) with energy 10" sub to put in here.
