comment What would be a good material for a portable video projection surface?
Thanks for the detailed and well-thought-out response. Couple problems; A) It's not just for looks. Moreover, I am willing to sacrifice some graphical quality because the only one that will be seeing it directly will be me. This is the reason I need such a small area. B) I didn't dismiss film, not for the right price. The hud business is interesting; will do more research.

There is actually it turns out special film that you can apply to any surface - almost as expensive as the paint tho. I will call a local dealer soon and see if I can't get a better price because they quote by the square meter and I only need 1.5sq ft at most.

Getting there... but still hoping for something semitransparent

comment What would be a good material for a portable video projection surface?
Thanks for that, but I really don't want to do a fabric solution - variety of reasons. And, no offense to anybody, this paint on business is absurd - $175 a gallon? I can buy good booze at those prices.

Yes, but that would imply more money than I consider it necessary to spend. Take, for instance, the idiotic invisible shield kits that are sold wit mobile devices. They charge about $30 for something that ships with most electronics for free.

comment How to hang a baby cradle from a concrete ceiling?
That sounds incredibly scary to me. Concrete is well-known for crumbling even if properly reinforced. If you have no access to a support bean I'd give this a pass.

comment How can I mount an LCD TV onto the *wall* of an RV?
no reason for there to be, now I think about it - not a lot of load in the roof to support.
