Was it just a simple, straightforward rotor & pad swap? Need any special tools front or rear?

Find a spray application. I did mine red with a brush kit and man was it a pain in the arse. Several coats, brush strokes through the paint job, uneven coats, but behind the stock wheels you can't tell. Definately spray, or pay for the powder coat, especially if you have open wheels.
