jvancil-

Thanks for your reply. I have one question for you. When you say, "you have to include the outside forces", do you mean indirect labor (material handlers, warehouse, etc...) or something else?

In my inital post, I simply had to estimate those numbers since they're hard to come by. But my guess (remember it's only a guess) was that labor was probably less than 10% of the average retail price of the vehicle. Does this sound reasonable to you? If not, why?
