You will need several things:
1. Sequencer for disconnecting PC from battery when not used
2. Power regulator - for making clean 12V supply out of car battery
3. Power supply unit ( PSU ) to power mobo
If you use low powered mobo, you can get M2-ATX all-in-one solution.
Otherwise you should see what power you need and get either Opus or Carnetix.
Hope this helps.

Yep that helps, also does the M2-ATX fit inside the cases or is another case needed for that part?

Thanks your help has been great so far!!!

M2-ATX should fit all cases where Morex or Opus can fit.
