Looks good! I had my detailer ceramic coat mine using GTechniq crystal serum light and exo. States up to 5 years protection. He uses some sort of booster product every 6 months on it. Can vouch after a year it still looks great and holds up incredibly well. All I do is power wash in between the 6 month touch ups.

CQuartz UK 3.0 on paint, their DLUX product on plastics and wheels. Been using CQuartz for years, love it.

I use gtechniq crystal serum lite and exo with great results. I put it on my previous f150 that was black and now my current one(smoked quartz). I usually get about 3-4 years out of it here in Ohio. Also makes it to where I can use a leaf blower to dry my truck when washing.

I use Adam’s graphite 7 yr. Likely not the best but not the worst.

their kits and YouTube gives a weekend warrior good guidance to do it themselves.

Just last weekend I did my buddies Accord with Gtechniq CSL and EXO.

Regardless of what coating system you use, the prep work is absolutely critical to getting good results. Both pictured I did a two step correction using Rupes pads, polishes, and buffer.

Is any ceramic coating difficult to DIY apply?

I have heard the dealership stuff is serious stuff, PPE (mask, gloves, etc) required. DIY stuff that way also?

Yes, also needs proper paint correction and prep, and must be done in and kept in a garage for at least a day to cure

I haven't tried it yet, but I've had the Cerakote speed ceramic kit in my garage for a while. I'm waiting until all of my Jetseal is gone.
