Default Miata Fuse Box Connector Question

Has anyone ever found the correct connector that is inside the miata fuse box? I'd like to get my hands on one so I can use an unused slot to power my LC1. I have a 91 miata that does not have power windows, but there is a slot for a power windows fuse that is powered, however, there is only 1 terminal in there. I want to get the correct connector that will slip into the fuse box so I can have a clean looking system. Otherwise, I'll just have to push a blade connector into the 1 terminal and use an inline fuse. It will work, but it will look like crap (for all the times that everyone looks under the dashboard).

I couldn't find the correct connector, though I found a ford connector that was close. I did discover that if you knock out 2 tabs near the front then a regular 1/4" female spade connector fits in the fuse box, so all the wiring will look stock! Until you pull the fuse out and the spade connector comes with it. I suppose I could glue it if I cared enough. Hopefully I won't be blowing fuses.

Used one of these plugged into the Wiper Fuse for my add-ons. Worked well enough. Fairly neat. No cutting of OEM wires. Of course, get rid of the crappy crimp connector it comes with and solder + shrink wrap.

That would definitely be easier than what I'm doing. Would've saved a 1/2 day trying to figure out the right connector too. I might try one of those for the next wiring adventure. Thanks!
