the steel price has increased at least 3X in the last 3 or 4 years. so does the labor and overhead cost increase?

Probably, though it might take some time. A big part of what is going on is that they keep printing more US dollars and so what they can buy (steel or labor) keeps going down. The other answer is that at this stage in the game an estimate that was right within a factor of 2 or 3 is good enough to make me happy for now. I just want some idea of pricing to see what ideas seem possible. Vincecate 13:28, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
