Angry Miata rattle

1993 when cold has a rattle in the dash/front console area for only 3-4 minutes until it is warmed. Under hood seems tight.
Any clues?
Thanks...

have the exhuast system checked for any loose heat shields that may be vibrating or causing a rattle. if your sure its coming from the dash the odometer/ speedometer can sometimes make some noise.

Does it do this when in gear? or just at idle? Does it speed up or stop when you rev the engine? Do you know what a noisy lifter sounds like?

good luck

Unhappy Miata rattle

The rattle is at idle and when in gear. It increases with with increased RPMs.
I'm not sure that I know what a lifter noise sounds like. Is that like a tappet tapping?
This sounds rather tinny. However, the heat shields are solidly
anchored.
Thanks for your questions......
