Hello all its been a while but my wife and I are settled in our new house and my sim is up in its new digs. I have a much smaller room for my projection but the moment I'm able to cover about 70" of a 8' screen. To go the rest of the way I'd like to experiment with mirrors. The room is a multi purpose set up for simming, gaming and movies. Can some of you guys that went the approach with mirrors share there advice on which mirror to look for and possibly where?
To ease things a bit I know I need a solid mirror and NOT the household type which is glass w/ mirror backing (ie creates ghosting). I need to get some pics of the current set up/home but will update, the sim room is still a work in progress but as soon as I run the wires thru the ceiling for sound and visuals it will be done for the most part. Thanks for the help as always.

Thanks a bunch, thats exactly what I'm looking for. Anyone have suggestions to where I could I find these things locally. Not specifically of course but maybe an craft store, Tap Plastics, Window/Door company?
I have no problem ordering online but the kid in me wants things quicker!

Excellent information, thank you. Hard to find item... prices are reasonable too.
