Granted, I can't see a detailed "goings on" with exactly how the hinge is made, but from this photo, it looks like the lid could be shimmed to the right fairly easily. I know the lid would overhang the right side where the handle is, but I don't think it would be a big deal. Certainly easier to let it hang over than making the lid smaller.
