Dumb noob question but would anyone know where the hideaway key is hidden on the NA?? I've recently locked my keys in the car and only had one key, the problem is solved after I broked my window and replaced it, I had a hard top mind you. Anyway, it would of been nice if I knew this tidbit before my dilemma, I know you can make a new cut but it would also be nice if I can not have the key hidden somewhere on the miata. I've seen another thread about the hideaway key but the description was vague. PM if we don't want the whole world to know where its located.

sorry, I guess I wasn't clear enough haha, doesn't the NA chassis have a magnetic box with a key in it hidden somewhere? I can't seem to find it, there's was a thread about a person finding his, I'm searching through the front front air dam feeling for it but I can't find it, I'm assuming I probably don't have one or maybe just not looking in the right area. I'm not asking for recommendations on where to hide a key haha, I'm asking where's the location of the hideaway key is on a NA model. I want to find it and put it away instead of having it attached to the car somewhere. Cheers!

-edit-
what's er? sorry, haha, I also have the plastic key in the card that you can pull out, that wouldn't be one in the same as the key hidden in the megnetic box would it??

I need the key, haha, since I kind of locked my last remaining brain cell haha in the trunk while I was looking for the Hide-a-butt-plugg that comes with the NA miata haha I am not looking to hide a plug haha just where to find it.

I just wish I could have seen him searching all over the car for the key. Now THAT would have been entertainment.
