Default On centering bindings

Hello everyone!

A friend of mine sold me his old burton board and bindings. I've been riding and tinkering with the angles but realized yesterday that my boots aren't correctly centered. I get about a inch and a half of heel overhang but my toes are a good inch away from the sidecut.

I'll try to fix it after work before riding but I'm wondering how I'll be able to do it. My bindings (Burton 2008 P1) came with the 4-holes pattern baseplate and the board has a 3d pattern. It works but I don't see how I can move the binding across the width of the board. I checked my bindings and the heelcup can't be adjusted. At this point, my options seem to be to finish work early and grab new baseplates at the local shop or get the baseplate closer to the edge by only using two screws.

Since my second option probably involve me riding down the mountain lying down on a stretcher at the back of the paramedics' snowmobile, I figured I'd ask the snowboarding gurus around here!

Cheers and thanks!
