When I restored my 70 Superbee, I turned the pins so the clips pointed to the windshield. I tried it both ways and found the cables looked nice and smooth with clips pointed at windshield. Sideways, they looked a bit twisted and didn't lay down nicely. In addition, I found it much easier to put clips in and out. Sideways, it felt like it would be easy to scratch the paint. I'd try it at different angles and go with what you like best.
