Any cleaning advice for cellulose over stone chip?

I've recreated a close original paint effect on a 1960 steel caravan by using Gravitex and cellulose paint. Problem is being it's a bit more textured than it was, I can foresee that the pits will leave areas for grime to be hard to remove – I had to buff an area which isn't textured and the mop has been used with Autosol before and black got into a textured area and is impossible to shift! I know daily driving won't be coming onto contact with Autosol, but grease, oil from the road may have similar sticking power!

Is there any sealer/varnish I can apply before I put the parts back on the body which will enable dirt to wipe off easier?

Will clear coat not work, it won’t necessarily make it easier to wipe off the dirt, but it will stop the dirt getting in and also mask the pits.

You could apply a spray sealant - DetailedOnline Nano Sealant is very easy to use and works well, obviously won’t stop the muck, but does make cleaning easier from my experience.

Then for cleaning a good pre-clean or decent snow foam to help lift the dirt, prior to washing ?

Ahh clear coat won’t mask any of that but it would stop the dirt getting into the the pits/depressions and make it easier to clean.
