model A with 32 frame

Can any one tell me how you put a model a on a 32 frame the rightway. A 32 frame has a belly in it, meaning the middle of the frame sways down 3/4 of an inch or so and the top of the rails on a model a frame are perfectly flat. My question is how do rodders put the A on 32 rails with out having to fill in the gap. do you slightly channel the front or back? I don't know the best way, I have been told that theirs is a book that explains how it is done but do not know the name of it or where to best look for it. Any one who knows or has done this before your in put would be greatly appreciated.
