Carbon Fiber Hood with or without Weatherstripping?

I just bought a carbon fiber hood for my 2 door '94 Acura Integra and I was just wondering if it is necessary to put on the weatherstripping from my OEM hood to my new carbon fiber hood?

Anybody have any idea if I should install the weatherstripping on my new hood or will it be just fine without one?

What are your opinions about attaching the weatherstripping to a carbon fiber hood?

There are no holes on the new hood to put in the pegs for the weatherstripping so I don't feel like drilling holes into my carbon fiber hood just for the weatherstripping.

by weather stripping, do you mean the ones between hood and headlight? if so, try 3m-ing it onto the headlights or w.e rather than the hood

Thanks for the reply!
Its the rubber piece that attaches to the hood and it is between the hood and the top of the whole bumper itself.
And yeah i was thinking of using 3m double sided tape but i wanted to know if it is necessary at all to put the weatherstripping on the hood at all.
