Bedazzled Our Ford With 5,000 Jewels

Meet Plan B …so named because, well let’s just say Plan A didn’t work out. After scraping off Plan A, we thought it would be fun to silicone acrylic jewels onto our 1994 Ford Taurus 4-door.
We put over 5,000 jewels on it and stopped counting. The finished product is super shiny and extra fun to drive!

JoLynn Potocki @Chris - That's a really common comment about that car- but in reality it's actually very easy to keep clean. Then jewels are sunk into black silicone and all that is needed is a mild soap and washing. The heavy acrylic jewels should have minimal fading but we cover the car to keep sun fading at a minimum :)
