Nice progress! What kid of air stapler did you end up with? Just curious, since maybe it would make a good gift for my dad sometime.

I don't see me using the stapler much after this project, so I just picked up a cheap 'Tool Shop' brand one at Menards for $20 on sale. It came with a ton of staples too. That alone saved me at least another $7.50 vs. my original intent which was to buy more staples for my electric stapler...

PICTURES! Still a lot to do, but this is the current state of things.

The seats.. NOTE: Wall color didn't turn out well in this photo. It is more of a rich brown...


Vantage point from the 2nd row before acoustical treatments...


Bass traps and front wall acoustic treatment...


Same but covered in black cloth...


With speakers (need to make speaker stands yet to get them behind the screen area...


Same as above but "naked"...


With 135" diag screen...


And some screen shots. Color is better on the screen than I captured. This is with me holding the camera in my hand, not on a tripod...

Images were cropped due to me not being perfectly in alignment (I was sitting off to the side a touch).

Looks like home stretch to me. Way cool. When do the ashtrays get installed into the seat arms?

Bob, while the cupholders are stainless steel and could handle it, this is a non-smoking establishment.
