Detailing Acronyms



In detailing research, I have searched unsuccessfully for an explanation for the acronym ISP. Anyone know what this is?

Thanks Dinanstu. Sorry, the Acronym was ISP not LSP. The detailing websites I am guessing are perhaps referring to using some type of propylene alcohol to clean a vehicle, but they always refer to ISP, which may be Initial Step Process ?? However, there is little or no information on what an ISP is. The detailers seem to know what this is, but never say what an ISP is. The last thing I want to do is use a corrosive cleaner. In the absence of details, I'm thinking that I might use "Meguiars Cleaner" wax. The issue with my car is oily-looking residue that takes me hours to remove. Hence, a cleaner is an option I was seeking. The only way to remove the "greasy surface" has been a dozen or so clean towels or Meguiars quick wax and lots of elbow grease. I'm assuming that I caused the problem by using a synthetic polish like Scratch-x, which has altered the molecular structure of the paint, causing the wax to "float" on the surface. Sorry for the long story.

You need a good quality orbital buffer and the proper pads to go with it.
Elbow grease Is overrated!
