Sorry for the gray cloud but SS ain't gonna come up with a solution for you.

Google is your friend. There are any number of 12V to 6V converters available through Amazon et al. Some are adjustable, some are non adjustable. They are rather inexpensive, and with Amazon you can probably return it if doesn't work out. Although, for $10, it's hardly worth the effort to return.

Here is a 12V > 6V non adjustable example: https://www.amazon.com/Converter-DROK-Regulator-Waterproof-Efficiency/dp/B00CGQRIFG/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=12v+to+6v+converter&qid=1578487841&s=electronics&sr=1-3

I've done some research on those and I'm sure they would work BUT I wouldn't know how to wire the USB portion of the plug.

Maybe if I could find a  90 degree MICRO USB cable with just the two POWER wires coming out on one end, I'd be set but so far, no luck.

More suggestions ?

Red and Black are positive and negative. Get a Buck convertor and set to your required output.
