The Swiss plugs (as much headache as they caused me when I moved there ages ago) are obviously of advantage here, just like UK plugs, because you know which wire is live or neutral.
I can confirm for the C6, it's a bit tight for the switch but that should do it!I think the inlet will fit easily to the right of the I/O shield and the switch on top of it where the WiFi antenna holes are located. One problem solved, ready to tackle the next one...
How are you going to connect the cables to them? I don't recommend terminals, such as the following, because they will add to the internal depth.
Soldering will be better about that as you can solder the cables at a right angle, parallel to the back of the case. But that will leave dangerous contacts accessible to the touch, unlike the above terminals and their protective cap.
As right angles connector/cable are hard to protect properly with an heatshrink sleeve, liquid electrical tape could come in handy at that point.
That will let you have a flushed top and an hinge only visible on the front? Sounds good!I was more thinking of something like in your drawing with the red hinge, mounted on the front side. But with a slight change: the side of the new top would be a little bit lower so as to cover the hinge from side
Can't wait to see how you implement that! If it's still on your list that is...I think it should be possible to get a good result with flat hinges like these
