Default Adding Cant to Older Cartels?

Bought my Burton Cartels on sale @ REI in Mar of '11, so my guess is that they are 2010 Model? (not 100% sure of that.) I was advised near the end of last season that a wider stance would probably help my riding and if I wanted to avoid some possible knee issues, get a canted footbed.

Does anyone know if it's possible to rig/add/mickey mouse some cant to the footbeds of these older Cartels? Would the "Auto Cant" footbeds for the new Cartels fit the older models? Not a rich guy & already pushing it financially with my new snowboard addiction, so anything I can do that will work as well on the cheap is going to b the 1st option I try! ( :Edit: ...Oh yeah,.. my Cartels are NOT EST, or channel! Reg. four hole mount!)

Thanks in advance for any info!

Yup, easier than you think.

Simple foam padding with an adhesive backing.

Depending on which stuff you can find, you should be able to stick one piece on the outer half of your binding.

If you can't find adhesive stuff, contact cement will work excellent.
I've used a foam sleeping pad before, but anything will work.
