    I can see a very thin grey line surrounding your slider and navigation, is that what you mean?

    In the css, I can see this –

    #header #mainmenu {
    float: left;
    border: 1px solid #CCC;
    background-color: white;
    margin-top: 40px;
    position: relative;
    width: 976px;
    z-index: 1000;
    box-shadow: 0 1px 0px white;

    The grey you are seeing is the border: 1px solid #CCC;

    You could make a child theme and change the colour in there.

    Hi, not sure if we’re talking about the same thing. It’s not very thin. It’s huge and it’s a very light grey colour slightly different to the white. Armchair boxing is written upon it. It circles the entire slider.

    That grey is an image set in this CSS code:

    #header {
        background: url("images/header-bg.jpg") repeat-x scroll left bottom transparent;
        padding-bottom: 20px;

    As noted by Christine, you should use a custom CSS option or plug-in to make changes or a child theme, or they will be erased when you update the theme.

    Then add this to your CSS:

    #header {
        background: #FFFFFF;

    You should also have a look at firebug. It’s a great way to figure out what CSS does what in your theme.
    Here’s a tutorial that you may find interesting:
