Wiper arm rubbed paint

Hey guys,

It looks like at one time or another the wiper arms rubbed the paint down to bare metal on my hood, I just noticed it today when waxing. I checked the wipers, turned them on and they didn't hit. But the rub marks are right where the wiper arm is..

Suggestions?

Someone opened the hood while the wipers were lifted up.

That would be my guess. I don't see how they could rub paint off, but maybe some pics would help!

I don't use my wipers. I am thinking of removing them for some weight savings.
