Switching from metal to resin pads

Anything special needs to be done to switch from metal to resin pads on a road bike? Wipe down rotor with 99% isopropyl and re-bed?

Yes, that should be enough if you re-apply the alcohol until the rag stays clean after rubbing the rotor. You can also use brake cleaner - which is more aggressive - first and finalize the process with alcohol.
