Tips on drilling kerscher style carbon fiber lip?

Just bought the front bumper splitter/lip and it's not drilled, any tips on drilling it? Do i have to remove the front bumper to do this? Can't think of another way of marking spots to drill...

Thanks.

You could use double sided tape to hold splitter on and then drill. I've done this on previous cars.

How would I know where to drill if I wanted to use the OEM holes? Or should I just approximate the location?

Cut small pieces of 3m double sided tape on each of the screws at the bottom of the bumper and then with the help of someone position the lip and move it up directly where you'd like to position it. If done right the 3m will stick to the lip and off the bumper then you can start drilling with help of its positions.
