I also did mine back in '04, right after the end of the wiper blade gouged two deep scratches in my paint.

I remember when I had my 993 turbo guys in Southern California were removing the front wipers and having body shops fill in the wholes

If my Turbo was an all-weather car (which it is supremely capable of) and driven in heavy rain, snow, sleet, lots of highway grime, etc., the wiper makes sense. And while I can't say it's never driven in the rain, if the weather looks rainy or nasty, I will almost always take my other turbo, the 6,000 pound F150 Ecoboost :-)
my turbo is an all weather car, i've still not found a reason to ever turn it on other then to make sure it works lol
