What I do is take care by minimising the amount of overspray on the rotor then once I have finished sprayed the rotor caliper etc I have a rag doused in thinners and I carefully wipe the rotor face clean.
It doesn't matter if it isn't 100% clean as the 1st time you go to brake the brake pads wipe the rotor clean anyway (obviously you don't want paint gunk built up on the pads though hence try to keep the paint overspray to a minimum)
Thanks for the advice , ill get busy over a rainy weekend in Melbourne
