I recently came across a refrigerator that I am going to make into a keg fridge. Question is, how easy will it be if I buy this setup first
Kegerator Conversion Kit (Door Kit, Less Cylinder)

how hard would it be to hook more kegs to it? I am starting to brew my own beer again and want to keg my own but dont want to be limited to one tap.

Like would it be major adjustment's that wouldn't be cost conscious? Would it be better to just build a kit from scratch?

A little better would be this you can probably knock off the keg and get it for about the same price as the micromatic one

Sankey tap is probably a fifth or more of the cost and if you have no intention of serving commercial kegs, it is a waste.

That said, I love micromatic. If you aren't in love with an inclusive kit, think about getting lines, faucets, shanks, regulators from micromatic and ball lock QDs from a LHBS (micromatic has them for about $3 more than market price) and c02 tank from a gas supplier.
