Cut big, trim to fit. Make templates to measure. Use body seams if you can.

Re: 72 GMC Sierra Grande

i've been building wrecks for 30 years and I have clipped hundreds of truck and cars both cab clips[through the floor] and clip tops through the window hole. The best is to measure and mark but also fit your glass and doors as your making the final fits. It isn't that big of a job just stay on your toes as you go and you'll be fine.
