    Hello, I'm looking for realistic car shader that allows putting on the car some dirt, dust, rust just to indicate the car is not completely new, but used for some time. Does anyone know is there a shader like that or how to create it?

    I mean effect like this:

    Built-in standard shader is very powerful and from technical side, standard shader is enough to mimic realistic car surface.
    You have to create textures and set them into standard shader properties. For car surface, the most important are metallic map and glossiness map.

    I remember last year, some of the guys on this forum, spoke about using
    something called Decals, for bullet holes, dirt on objects etc.
    If you want, you might want to learn about decals.

    Here's a small read up, on the decals thing, from the Unity manual.
