Material Wear Reference v1 (175 Pictures)

A collection of photos of a tractor, a trailer, and some other machinery from my parents' farm in Wyoming. The tractor was purchased in the '80s from a farmer who had abused it and damaged parts of it. However, the internals continue to work flawlessly. To quote my stepdad, "What the photos show is not a result of use or abuse, but just the environment. Wind abrasion, fluctuating heat and cold, radiation from the sun, and oxidation reek havoc on paint, metal, rubber and plastic and glass. When it comes to man made devices, Mother Nature prefers entropy."

Feel free to use the photos in any way you wish. You can see that some parts of the machines have been repainted, repaired, and replaced, and therefor the various parts have worn at differing rates over time. There are photos of worn metal, rubber, plastic, glass, insulated hoses, wood, stickers, and more.

Thanks for looking. Please excuse the photo quality, taken several years ago on my iPhone 6 on a whim - some pictures ended up overexposed or out of focus - I thought they might still come in handy to someone besides myself.
