Frs lip install question

I bought a lip similar to ht auto for my frs. It did not come with any install instructions and did not come predrilled. I was able to securely mount the ends of the lip with OE plastic screws but I am not sure how to mount the middle part of the lip. I tried 3M tape but it doesn't stick well to the lip. Does anyone know how the Ht auto lips for frs are mounted in the middle?

-thanks

Although I have a different lip, I placed my front bumper ontop of the lip and tightened some spots with clips then used a screwdriver to make small holes. took the bumper off and began drilling

Drill some holes in the lip itself, mount the lip and clip it in. Use a marker and stick the marker into the holes you drilled on the lip. This will mark your front bumper. Take lip off, drill where the marker spots are. Then fully attach the lip.
