Unwanted border & menu items are larger than background.

The URL is www.nowcpr.com. I added a background image to my menu bar and the menu items (same image), for both page and category menus. On both menus, the background is smaller than the "buttons", and on the page menu, there is a white border that I can't get rid of.
The CSS I added for both menus is
div#menu1 ul.rMenu {
background-image:url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/nav_bg.jpg);
border: none 0px;
}
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:link {background-color:transparent !important; font-weight: bold;}
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:hover {background-color:transparent !important; font-weight: bold;}
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:visited {background-color:transparent !important; font-weight: bold;}
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:active {background-color:transparent !important; font-weight: bold;}

and then the same only using menu2 for the category menu.

I can't seem to get rid of the white that seems to border the page menu background and I can't get them the same size. I can't seem to figure out setting the height of the menu backgrounds, so they're even, or if that will even work.
What can I do?

Yes I am.

height: 1px;
background: #ffffff;
border-top: 1px solid #B52D2F;

height: 1px;
background: #ffffff;
border-bottom: 1px solid #B52D2F;

BTW, you answered on my other post as well, about the wp-member plugin breaking my html/css inserts - it's doing the same thing here. When I look at the styling for the bars and other elements, I can only see the top line and I can't expand the box. I can select it all and then copy/past somewhere however. Have you heard of this before?

1) did you remove the %bar1 and 2 and did that fix it?
2) yes I have heard of many plugin conflicts. I think I've discovered it is because are using a GLOBAL jscript variable as a PRIVATE variable. In other words the plugin comes in and says 'I'll just mess with this variable and not reset it back to what it was' and that can mess up any other jscripts.

I tried removing them and it got rid of the white border around the menu bar background image, however the menu items are still much bigger than the menu background. Is there no way to fix this and still have the %bar1 and %bar2?
