Now after seeing both Mark Hunter and Dean McManis say they like how the LT150 performs with their Grayhawks I'm anxious to see what a gray screen can do. And I imagine others are thinking the same thing.
But before we go all out and make a sizable investment in a Grayhawk I think it would be wise to experiment with a makeshift gray screen to see how we're going to like it. I have a suitable piece of material to paint. But I'm hoping the screen gurus out there can suggest an off the shelf paint (brand and color) to use.

This paint works great-even on lower powered projectors-and you will like that it was a very inexpensive can of paint. The brand is Long Life and it is an exterior latex-called Cape Cod Gray. It is manufactured by Yenkin-Majestic Paint Corporation, Columbus Ohio. Hope this helps-let me know the your results if you try it--
Thanks, that's exactly what I was hoping for. I'll try to find that brand and color. If that brand isn't available to me do you think "Cape Cod Gray" will be a standard color that might be available in other brands?
Thanks, Lenny. That's very kind of you. I'll call around tomorrow to see if I can find it. If not I'll email you (since it's worked for you it will be better than me trying to guess at a suitable color).
