Seeking a 2U super short depth chassis with front I/O for server closet

Hello, I am looking around to see if I can find a 2U chassis that has a super short depth of 9.8" and a front I/O panel.  The plan is to put this in a wall mounted 12U rack.  Upon searching online, I came across the model below, but it has rear I/O instead of front.

Below is a screenshot and link to the merchant that offers this case.  I have tried contacting their sales dept a few weeks ago to see if a front I/O version was available, but they are not responding.

So does anyone know of such a case and if it even exists?  The requirements are 2U and a ~9.8" depth, front I/O panel and 2x 5.25 bays.

Which ports do you need available on the front?   Video, NIC, etc?

It will be an itx motherboard like the one at the link below so the vga, usb, and lan will be in front so only the power connector will be in the back.   Also I plan to use a low profile raid card for the pcie slot.

Supermicro makes a few chassis that are close, but a bit too deep. --> https://www.supermicro.com/products/chassis/2U/523/SC523L-505.cfm

Your best (or only) option may to be to install a shelf kit in the rack and then and use a table top ITX case.

Yeah I saw those chassis on supermicros website.    Is there anyone that makes custom cases?

Any local metal shop could make one.  But the cost would be likely far more than what's available online.

I was afraid of that.  I would like to keep this question open a bit longer to see if any other options appear.
