Kitchen: fitting a full-height end panel to a base unit before full height unit?

I am fitting my kitchen - so far so good - thank you for the help so far.

My kitchen run looks a bit like this:

[Full Height Units] - [End Panel] - [Base Units] - [End Panel] - [Full Height Units]

I am working left to right and have already fitted my first full height units, first end panel and the base units. Keeping working left to right, would mean I need to fit my end panel next.

What is the normal way of doing this? Fitting the end panel to the base unit feels wrong. But fitting it to a standalone (and only 300mm thick) full-height unit also seems like a challenge.

My best idea so far is to position my new unit close to where it will be. Set-up a line laser to match the draw-line of my other full-height units and level the new unit up. Then with the unit levelled, get the end panel cut to size.

It was a bit of a fiddle getting the first end-panel perfectly fitted - so not looking forward to it. Any tricks would be most appreciated.

Thanks!

I was because I couldn't fit to the high cabinet with the high cabinet in exactly the right place - as there was a base cabinet in the way. Having said that, I did sort of end up having a go... I positioned the high cabinet about 10cm away from the base cabinet. measured up satisfying myself the wall was uniform enough, cut the wood, dry fit, cut again, another dry fit - then screwed the tall unit, end panel and base unit together all at the same time. Thanks for the advice all.
