Rail kit to mount L2000 in a new rack

We are standardizing the racks in our server room. The new racks happen to be Dell branded (part # 220-4494), but we already have an HP RX6600, an EVA4400, some MSA's and other HP equipment installed in them. So at least the newer HP stuff is built to fit this type of rack.

I have an old L2000 server in the original HP rack that needs to be installed into a new rack. The width (left to right) of the old HP rack matches the new one, but the depth (front to back) of the old rack is 1 inch shorter (about 28 inches) than the new one (which is about 29 inches). All the rail kits in that rack EXCEPT the L2000 can extend to accommodate the extra inch.

Anyone know the part number to a rail kit for this? Any other ideas are welcome.

I can always just sit it on a fixed shelf, but that makes servicing it more difficult since it would no longer slide out.

Thanks for any insights you can provide,
Ray

Just in case someone else comes down this path... I ended up using a rail mounted shelf from rack solutions.
