Question Brake Caliper/Bolt Question

Hey, folks. I did some searching on here and didn't find anything, so sorry if it is posted somewhere else.

I took my brake caliper/tire off and painted my front fairing. Dumb question: When going to put the caliper back on, when tightening the bolts (not the one's holding the pads on, but the one's that attach the caliper to the rotor) they are not only going through the caliper, but far enough to physically touch the rotor and stop the wheel from spinning. Anyone know what I've got wrong? I know it's the right bolt, because I labeled all of them in a sandwich bag when I took it off. Do I need new pads?

Bolt goes threw the fork first, then caliper. Pads don't affect how the caliper mounts. Show us a pic.

I n00b'd this one up. I just put the pinch bolts where the caliper bolts go...... to sum it up - all's good, and I felt pretty dumb.
