U would need to build a sealed isolated box as this is a car situation so the pcb would be exposed to the elements. For your purpose I think those rgb bars will use quite a bit of current so mosfets would be your best option. I don't know if there is a commercial option that uses my concept but u might look for rgb common anode to cathode converter on ebay maybe now they have made those. When I made this instructable there were none.
Values depends on the amount of leds u are controlling. Small TO-92 can handle 200 ~ 1000 ma for more u need large heatsink mountable transistors or mosfets. Current is for each channel.
