About ECK

We are dedicated to the restoration and repair of the classic VW Kombi. From rust repairs to the complete restoration of Kombis. East Coast Kombi’s offer a full service for the enthusiast.



Paul Johnson started East Coast Kombis (ECK) in 2006 on the Central Coast. Paul has been doing metal work, and car restoration for about 30 years. His initial skills were developed as a boilermaker, which is a solid grounding when shaping, cutting, welding and repairing all types of metals.

Apart from having restored numerous cars and Kombis, Paul has owned many himself – so his experience is ‘first hand’

Most car owners who embark on a restoration project do so because of the passion towards the car and getting it up to a good standard of finish and detail.

Each restoration project that we take on is done in close consultation with the client, so that the end result is up to the standard expected.

We invite you to have a look at our workshop on the Central Coast, and we are happy to quote on any rust repair, restoration, or modification work that you need done.
