Removing Minima Separators-Intermediate

There are a few things that come standard in a minima template that used to drive me crazy:
  1. The dotted line that separates widgets in the sidebar.
  2. The dotted line that separates posts.
  3. The lines around the header section.
I was grateful for these things back when I didn't have a clue how to create my own post/widget separators and header. Didn't take long before I searched for and succeeded at finding a way to get rid of them. Luckily, this is REALLY simple!

How to remove the widget separator in sidebars:
Find the 'Sidebar Content' section in the HTML of your blog.
Refer to the image above and change the 1px (circled in red) to 0px.
Preview and save.

How to remove the post separator:
Find the 'Posts' section in the HTML of your blog.
Refer to the image above and change the 1px (circled in red) to 0px.
Preview and save.

How to remove the lines around the header:
Find the 'Header' section in the HTML of your blog.
Refer to the image above and change the 1px (circled in red in two different places) to 0px.
Preview and save.

Nothing to it!

LOVE this! I actually just figured out how to remove those annoying lines on my sidebars... now, how do you add in a picture or detail between posts or cute little things on the sidebar? Is it as simple as creating something, getting a url for it through photobucket and adding the url in that same spot? hopefully, that made sense! :)

This is not working for me. I've changed the code to "0px" but still have the lines between my sidebar gadgets. Any idea why it's not working?
