Got a laptop or a REAAAALLLY long USB cable?

Mine will take stills, but I'd have to use my laptop with it outside, cuz the car doesn't fit in the house.

with your webcam you shoulda got some software for that. Mine was $49 cam and did snapshots. Check the CD you got with it, unless IT CAME from EBAY. AOTS fans will get that. Sorry it'* 4 am time for some (-_-)zzZZZZZ

Get a disposable camera, and get the CD with it, or use your own camera, and get a CD with processing.

Otherwise my avatar was my webcam....

When I didn't have the digicam during the process of shaving the doors and stuff I used a cam from brooks. It has a built in picture viewer and when you return it you get the pics on disk. Also saves you from having to scan pics and you got something that will last. So after you sell the car you can look back. Also higly recommend putting everything on Cardomain.com It'* pretty much your personal vault.
