Bingo!
Finish what you start. Truth is over the mountaintop or six feet under.
4 x TS1000, 2 x TS1500 , 2 x timex 2040 printer, 1/2 x timex 2020 cassette deck, ZXPAND+AY, ZeddyNET, ZXBlast..., unfinished Spectrum...Still no life!

Interesting choice of travel...
Since there is a CPLD or FPGA sitting there, it would presumably be possible to create a ZX80/81/Spectrum switchable in the same case?

However, it should have either a green or a red solder resist on the bottom :mrgreen:

Let the upgrades proceed...

1. Switching regulator
2. Internal microfan... not needed modern components
3. Support for ZX81/80 on CPLD as someone mentioned...
4. Spectrum to ZX81 bus convertor is there one? I want to run Z'pand.

Oh wait first... where do I get one?
