d. Body Spoons. Body spoons are generally used for driving high spots back
to their normal position without disturbing the surrounding surface. The
working surface of each spoon is designed for a specific purpose. The more
common varieties of spoons are the following:
(1) Cowl Bracket (A) (figure 8). Designed especially to hook over the
fender brackets, it is used to work over cowl strainers and cowl brackets
from post to dash and either high or low crown surfaces. It may be used as
a dolly, so the wheel can be kept on when reaching a dent.

(2) Double End and Lower Beck Quarter Panel Spoon (B). It is used for
removing dents on quarter panels around rear pillars, behind inner
construction, and behind back panel strainers. It may be used for removing
dents from behind sills.
