I chose to do ceramic coating on my raptor for ease of cleaning. I get a lot of mud etc from having fun in it, and it’s nice when I’m done to get the pressure washer out and just rinse it off. I’ll give it a wash every other week using CarPro reset wash soap. And then usually once a month I use a concoction called blue juice that increases the gloss of the ceramic coating. It’s 1 oz CarPro ech20 and about 2-3 oz of CarPro reload mixed into a 30 ml spray bottle and then I add distilled water to the top and shake well before using. Water spots from sprinkler systems and also bird droppings can leave marks in the ceramic coating and if that happens it would more than likely need to be compounded off and the ceramic coating reapplied. For me it has been worth every penny. Waxing was tiresome on my other car and this has saved me so much time.
