Rear brake caliper/frame spacing(1 post)

I was tuning up my bike the other night and noticed that one of the bolts to the caliper brakes looks to be flush against on of the seat stays. I figure it's flush because I couldn't pass a sheet of paper between the two. I'm wanting to put a spacer(washer) on the caliper stud to "lift" it away from the frame so I don't mess up the finish or gouge the metal. Question: Has anyone else had a similar problem? How did you remedy it?
