Front brakes - 2 questions 1) Line to which piston? 2) Are retainer clips necessary 700 1991

Girling caliper. Replacing flex lines while putting on new pads and rotors
1) Forgot to note which line goes to where are the caliper. I'm assuming lower line to lower piston, but also wondering if it matters.
2) Two of the retainer clips that attach to the hard lines are missing. Does it matter? What is the function? I would guess to keep the lines from chafing? The clips are $5 each and have to be ordered so I would have to wait a couple days. I'm thinking maybe I could just use caulk if I'm careful.
Thanks.
