I'm currently opening an outdoor restaurant in Thailand. Since majority of my customers are really big fan of English premier league football, I've had some thought about setting up a projector for them to watch the game while dining out. First I think that would be easy due to the fact that I already have an epson eb-w6 projector and a motorized 100 inches screen projector at home. In reality, the task is quite challenging. Here are some problems I'm facing right now.

1. Thailand has a very very very long rainy season. Sometimes the rain would pour down very strongly suddenly. This prevents me from placing a motorized screen projector outdoor.

2. I can not completely control the ambient light since my place is practically a restaurant. People will need to see what they are eating. Although my business hour starts around 18:00, there will always be some light in the background.

3. According to the calculation, I need to place my projector screen at least about 2 - 2.5 meters above the ground for all my audience to see from difference angle. But due to the hot weather during the day, I can not leave a normal hand pull projector outside. Hence, it's quite inconvenient for me to have to ask my employee to climb the stair to remove it everyday.

I search through the internet and found this site. And a lot of people here are talking about black widow, PFG projector screen. Considering the material involved, I think it's a perfect solution to my problem. I asked my employee to construct a fairly large board made of a material that could withstand rain and sunlight for me. And this is where I got stuck. I can not find Autoair color aluminium anywhere in my area. I already went through 4 different hardware stores yesterday and none of them even heard of the name before. They were asking me if it's some kind of bronze color oil based paint. Maybe I wasn't looking in the right place. From what I understand, it's basically a kind of color that you use an airbrush to spray on a car and it's a water-based paint, er....right? My question is what would be the kind of people that would recognize this type of material, specifically autoair color aluminium? Should the people at custom paint car garage recognize it? Does it have any other names? Can it be use for different purpose other than car painting? :gah:

Many thanks for your clarification on the property of autoair color aluminium. Anyway, I went to the largest hardware store in my area where most people who do car custom paint go to get their supplies. The bad news is they said that the paint job for cars in Thailand primarily uses oil based material, so they don't have any supply for water based stuff. And to make the matter worse they said that I am probably the first person to ask them for water based color. :gah: But the good news is they are willing to talk to their dealers if autoair color aluminium is available for sell in Thailand. So wish me luck. Otherwise I'll probably end up ordering it somewhere from the internet. Talking about ordering autoair color aluminium, do you know of any suppliers that do international shipping? :help:
