    First of all I don't believe that you will have to custom-solder a monitor cable as the eMac has a monitor-out port. What i would suggest is one of two things for power:
    1. Take the original power supply and just rig it up so you don't shock yourself.
    2. Clip the cable to the PS and do some soldering.

    What Capitalizt said. Get an inverter and plug the Mac directly into the inverter to power it. Make sure you have mounted the power supply in a location/case so that it won't shock you or ground itself out in the car.

    It ought to work just fine.
