Nope, I didnt mask the rotor surface at all.

All you have to do is carefully avoid overspray on the rotor braking surface and its unavoidable some overspray will be applied, just wipe down the rotor braking surface with a rag doused in thinners to remove most of it.

It doesn't matter if some paint is left remaining as the 1st few times you apply the brakes whilst driving it gets ripped off anyway, but as I stated in a previous post you don't want a heap of caked on paint building up on the brake pads but a small amount wont hurt,
