Default PPF Vin Location??

Does anyone have a picture of where the PPF vin number is stamped into??

I have a 96 miata and until I learned that the front bumper had a different vin than the rest of the car (I assume it was damaged and the previous owner replaced with a new one) I want to find all the vins.

I was able to locate all of them except the

"PPF, top side roughly in center (stamped letters)"

There's no VIN on the PPF. I just spent like 10 minutes looking for it on the PPF I broke from my '99.

If he was just screwing with us, that was a good one. Glad I had a spare or I woulda been under the car looking for it, lol.

Thats what I figured (after a couple hours of fighting to find it), but how come it says that on every "where are the vins" threads?
