Abstract: An interchangeable face gauge structure for automobile gauges comprises a gauge body, a face gauge, a retainer ring and an outer cover. The gauge body and outer cover are combined by means of assembling, which causes the outer cover to be dismountable from and re-mountable on the gauge body. The face gauge is additionally mounted on the surface of the light directing panel on the gauge body, which allows the face gauge to be replaceable with one of the type to the liking of the user after the outer cover is dismounted from the gauge body, improving the variability and visual effect of the gauge body. Further, with the convenience of the outer cover being easily mountable on the gauge body, the user is allowed to replace and mount parts by themselves, adding to the practicality of the structure.

Abstract: A lug nut system for a wheel includes a rigid body having at a first end a tapered rim and a threaded aperture adapted to engage at least one threaded stud of the wheel. The body includes a tool engagement section, and a threaded shaft at a second end of the body adapted for receiving an ornamental cap. A cover has a first open end, a sleeve adapted for fitting over the body, and a cap at a second end that includes an aperture for the threaded shaft of the body. Preferably the sleeve has a cylindrical inside surface, such that the sleeve is free to rotate when in place over the body, thereby inhibiting removal of the wheel. The cover further hides any tool marks on the tool engagement section of the rigid body.
