It is just a lip. How hard can it be? Have another person to help you hold it up while you screw it into the bumper and then secure it with some brackets underneath?

are you going to paint it, clear coat the Carbon Fiber or will you install it as is? I suppose you have to clarify some details before you can expect a proper answer.
