Paint on hood hinges?

They finally painted mine a few weeks ago. Looks good, but the paint on the ends of the two brackets that are welded to the bulkhead, on which two brackets the hood is hung, has already been nearly scuffed off, just from opening & closing the hood while they do the engine work.

Is there any way to protect those hinges from the paint being scraped off from opening the hood?

Regards
