Default Have you used this conversion kit?

Does anyone have any experience with this kit? http://www.amazon.com/Double-Tower-Refrigerator-Conversion-Brass/dp/B0006SS0DU/ref=sr_1_31?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1213885424&sr=8-31

Also I am wondering if a 10lb bottle will fit in the Sanyo 4912 along with 2 kegs.

I am thinking this will cost about $750 total to build. Does that sound about right?

With everything, it cost me about $550 to convert my Sanyo. I don't think 10lb tanks will fit in there. I haven't tried it, but just getting the 5lb tank in there is tight...

Based on my set-up there is no way I could fit a 10lb tank in my 4912. I might be wrong but I think you can get cheaper towers from one of the homebrew sites (mine was like $200).
