How to copy a GPO to multiple forests

We have a number of customers that we manage their networks.  There is a need to setup a relatively complicated GPO on all of the customers.  There are only a couple of settings that are not the same across all networks.
To save tons of man-hours manually recreating the GPO settings across all sites, it would be great if we could export the GPO from a source domain, and then import it into the other domains.  Then just edit a couple of the few settings that are unique to that individual location.
Anyone have any idea how to go about doing that?
All networks are running Server 2008 R2 on their Domain Controllers.

You can backup all the GPO objects using the Group Policy Management Tool, then copy the backup files to the new forests, and use the Import feature to read settings from the backup policies.

This should help
