Thanks. All the material is felt. Wal-Mart 2.97 yd. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
The top mask conduit is just standard electrical. No primer, just brush painted it. I originally used 3/4" electrical conduit for the screen mount too, but it was too flimsy.
The Da-Lite screen has a slight ripple near the bottom pull. I donâ€™t' have any problems with it (i.e. I don't see it during a movie).
As I mentioned, it only takes a few minutes to set up. The longest part is when setting up for viewing 1.85:1. The screen does not stop in the right spot to use the bottom border and I have to use the bottom mask vice the bottom screen border. It takes an extra 30 seconds to align it. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
For 2.35:1, the screen stops at just the right spot and I use the bottom border of the screen. So, positioning of the mask is not critical.
Of course I should just scrap the whole thing since I now know 4:3 has no place in a HT. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
