Work with the product at your shop or home for a few hours before you start at the customers just so you don't look like you don't know what you are doing.

Best advice I've heard in a long time!! I figured that one out on my own- probably due to my insecurity and not wanting to look like a jackass in front of a customer! ( I'd rather them think I'm a jackass, then let them see me doing it wrong, and removing all doubt!)

Yes its bad enough when you really know what you are doing and have to think out a problem with the customer there, but when you dont have a clue what you are doing that could be real embarassing.
