Wouldn’t it be easier to use something like this:
USB cables come in lots of different cable thicknesses; I’d think that soldering the connector back on and then panel-mounting one of these would be easier than stripping and aligning the wires.
(Sadly, I don’t have any of these left. I’ve used them all on devices I’ve built)
