Convert LFF DL385 G6 to SFF

I'm looking to possibly convert a DL385 G6 LFF server into a SFF (with two sff drive cages or one sff drive cage and an optical drive). Is it possible to do this? I'm looking to expand and thought this was a cheaper option.

When I look at the current config, the drive cages don't just swap out. Didn't realize that the lff cage was fixed in there. Anyone have any ideas?

Have you tried getting a drive shrinker? They're usually in Home Depot next to the pipe and wire stretchers. (Yes, this is a joke.)

If you have the rack space, adding an MSA70 might be a much easier path. That's what we did.
