    Dont forget that there is increased brake "vvvvrrrrr" when under heavy breaking with the grooved discs. Doesnt bother me though.

    I spray my discs prior fitting with HT paint, black, more around the edges and inner than the pad surface parts,

    It doesn't matter too much on overspray,(pad surface)
    after all real quality discs have a film of paint on them,

    But do wipe over the pad surface with Brake clean , or similar,
    so as not to be contaminated with oily marks
