I'm sick of washing and waxing the truck on a constant basis.

It's a 2013 in really good shape.

I'm also looking for dealer recommendations in Michigan that can do this.

im prepping to do a Optimum Gloss Coat. i have been researching doing this for a while. I looked at few types of ceramic coatings. I decided on Optimum Gloss coat. From what i have seen its pretty easy once you have your Raptor surface prepped. you have to make sure you have No paint swirls or orange peal!

CQuartz UK is what I did, and paint correction is everything, if you think it's good enough, it's not. I prepped for 7 hours and my truck was brand new. Smartest thing I have done though, it is amazing how much easier it is to wash, I can literally hose it off.

I had Opticoat Pro put on my wife's black Macan, No swirl marks and looks like glass even though she drives through the car wash. Used Motor City Auto Spa in Royal Oak but would also recommend Autolavish. Autolavish does amazing detailing and had not been applying ceramic coatings when I did the Macan. Will probably use them for the Raptor.
