Acceptable jacking points on a '90-'05 Miata

I lifted this image from a post at Miataforum and added some additional jacking points that weren't called out in the original image. You can tell which ones I added because they look like they were drawn by a 6-year old.
The four inner-most points indicated in the image should be taken with a big grain of salt. They are at the ends of the "frame rails" which are actually just floor panel stiffeners. You may get away with jacking right on the ends of them where they are a little stronger, where the yellow ovals are in the image, but there's also a pretty good chance that those locations will bend under the weight of the car. I strongly suggest you use one of the other locations indicated.
