Look for

.inner {
border-left:1px solid #1D2F46;
border-right:1px solid #1D2F46;
border-top:1px solid #1D2F46;

Find the above class in colorstyle7.css (line 25). I took the background out. You can copy the code I have and replace what you have as the class .inner now or simply remove any reference to background code.

#bg-panel2 {

Find the above div in colorstyle7.css (line 12). I took the background code out, you can copy this and replace the current code or simply remove any background coding when you find it.

As a side note though, save a backup of your CSS before you alter, in case you don't like it. It's a bit tough to read the font with the logo showing through. You may opt to replace the backgrounds I've taken out with something more transparent so the logo shows through, but the text is easier to read.
