The older and more worn version uses a different texture, which can be seen in Fig.10. It shares the same template, but with the paint layer switched off. Now the paintwork has been completely removed to expose the underlying metal and as a result has become rusted over time. By using Select > Color Range I sampled some rust from a couple of textures from Total Textures: V2:R2 - Aged & Stressed and Total Textures: V17 - Urban Extras Textures, including a line of rivets which were then color corrected to match.

I decided to create a variation that was somewhat midway between the two using the Arch & Design material combined with a Composite map (Fig.11). The pipes use the same texture evident in Fig.08, but you can see more paintwork has been removed from the left pipe. The horizontal one has also started to rust significantly in the lower section.

In order to create this version I applied a Composite map in the Diffuse map channel of the Arch & Design material and then created a new layer. Fig.12a - b shows the two Composite maps for each pipe and the corresponding maps. The horizontal pipe uses a mask to help create a random pattern of rust whilst the central one uses a single map set to Multiply.

The final version was taken into Photoshop and some post-work was applied before arriving at the final version, which can be seen in Fig.13.
