Installing Digital Watchdog 1U P-Rack Server Into Two Post Rack System

I have a Digital Watchdog 1U P-rack server that I'm supposed to install on a job. I did not supply the rack for switches that was supplied by the IT guys. For whatever reason Zane decided to install a 2 post rack system there. Wondering if anybody had a solution that would still allow me to use the  sliding rail kit that comes with the server. Any help would be appreciated

They do have 2 post conversion kits, they are ugly(scroll down) but you have to make do with what you got.

On the lighter side, you could install the server vertically in the 2 post rack so nothing sticks out and see what the IT guys face looks like. Another option would be to install an additional 2 post rack behind the one you got and turn it into a 4 post. (gotta be silly once in awhile).
