"Better pic"? Better how? Everything I've got is in the wiki:Jacking up a LEAF
There are diagrams for a "jack block" as well as its Google Sketch-Up schematic.
Let me know if you need something else.
How I use it:

I generally put the jack's head at the inboard end of the A arm, or on the subframe, like this, on my old VW
. If there's not a convenient spot, I'd put a length of 2x4 under the A arm spanning the bushings at its inboard end, at the two white arrows' end in the following pic, from http://blogs.insideline.com/roadtests/2 ... round.html
Yeah, Miatas are like 2600-2800 lbs. The LEAF is at least 3350 lbs. which at least an extra 275-375 lbs per side. I suppose one can lift the car slowly and let it back down quickly if there are creaking or crumbling sound or if the sill starts to buckle
. I kinda think it'd be OK since the sill is part of the side's perimeter and would need to be strong to resist a big side impact. OTOH, I don't want to be the first to find out that it's a bad idea to jack a LEAF up at the middle of the sill!
I wouldn't go with the Miata adapter since the LEAF as a little hump on the inside of the pinch weld at the jack point, which would prevent equal contact with the sill on either of the weld. My jack block accounts for that hump.
