    Acronyms

    Acronyms


    To avoid any acrimony over acronyms, I thought I would start a thread of some of the acronyms I have learned on this forum:

    AG - Autogeek
    AOI - Klasse All-In-One
    EX-P - Poorboy's EX-P Pure Sealant
    LSP - Last Step Product
    MF - Micro Fiber towel
    PB - Poorboy’s
    PC - Porter Cable variable speed polisher
    QD - Quick Detail
    UPP - Four Star Ultimate Paint Protection
    WG - Wolfgang product line
    WW - Waffle Weave towel

    Perhaps this will be of benefit to the other tyros like me. Maybe you seasoned pros out there can add to this list!
