I can't help with custom cases, but I can share how I make easy serial 
access port on my devices.

I use an audio jack. Female panel-mounted audio jack on the device, and 
male jack on the USB-TTL dongle.

You need to know how you soldered the cables as they need to match 
electrically (duh!).

If you don't have a drill to make a decent hole in the case you can just 
use the soldering iron as a drill

and some pliers to remove the blob of plastic. Do it outside of the 
house of course.

After the second or third time the job is pretty clean and 
unconspicuous, it does not look like a mod.
