Well, I posted this originally on /fa/, but perhaps /diy/ is the most apt place to post this on.
Anyone have any article of clothing (especially sneakers, but any other shoe, jacket, shirt, anything) they've modified in one shape or form? For aesthetic reasons or otherwise? Post 'em here.

I am having le fucking problems with trying to paint a bike frame.
It had deep scratches, I figured okay primer would fix this.
-I sanded it down before applying paint just to get any raised bits.
-put on primer, this didn't solve the problem, just made it more visible.
-I got a high build primer with filler and put a lot of that on.
-it was kinda lumpy like thick paint would be, -so I sanded that, then put normal primer on to see how it was doing.
-still not smooth finish.
- so I got some filler, skimmed that on as smooth as I could,
-brushed on some cellulose thinners to get it even smoother. and blend in the hard edges.
-sanded it after that to get it as smooth as I could, used my finger till I couldn't feel any bumps.
-today I just re primed it, thick coat ontop.
still looks like shit.
where do I go from here.
im just going to sand again and prime again after that.

For my father's birthday, I want to fix up our garage. About 1/3 of its floor is dirt where the concrete/cement has crumbled. The problem is, I know absolutely nothing about fixing floors. If anyone has any advice on material to use, brands, or how to make it level, that would be much appreciated.
