So, you dowel dwr. slides into a refer. decorative end panel?

I'm just trying to get you to clarify how cumbersome your method really is, for the benefit of others.

My fridge is 32 1/2" wide and my fridge cabinet is 33" so I decided to add 1/2" of cabinet filler strips on both sides of the cabinet.

Because I'm installing this myself, I need to secure the other end panel to the wall and/or the other end panel then raise the cabinet into place.

Would you guys attach the filler strips before or after the cabinet is in place?

To keep the faceframe of the cabinet tight to both decorative end panels only use a filler that will bring the side of the upper flush with the side of the faceframe, which in modulars is 1/8", any more then requires a scribe mold to bridge the gap between the faceframe of the upper and both end panels.

Add the filler before you install the upper and a strip at both the top and bottom of the sides and you'll have no deflection when you nail at the top of the end panels.
