WordPress Menu CSS Border Problem

Is there a better way to do a border on a top navigation in my WordPress site?

http://www.beartoothflyfishing.com/ 

Here is the CSS that drives the borders now. I am getting a double border for the drop-downs, and I have done a few specific CSS fixes for specific menu-header items, but would prefer a solution where I would not have to apply band-aid fixes every time the menu changes.

Border CSS for menu:

#access .menu-header li, div.menu li { 

border-top: 3px solid #f3c656;
border-bottom: 3px solid #f3c656;
border-right: 3px solid #f3c656;

}

Open in new window


Example of "band-aid fix":

#access #menu-item-135 {
	border-right: 0;
}

Open in new window

You could use,

#access .menu-header li, div.menu li {

-moz-box-sizing: border-box;
-webkit-box-sizing: border-box;
box-sizing: border-box;

border: 3px #f3c656;


}

and in style.css line 641,

#access ul ul {
      -moz-box-shadow: 0px 3px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
      display: none;
      position: absolute;
      /*      top: 200px;*/

      padding-top: 3px;

/*      top: 180px;*/
      /*left: 0;*/

      float: left;
      z-index: 99999;
     border-top: 0px;
      border-bottom: 0px;

}



And get rid of,

#access #menu-item-135 {
      border-right: 0;
}

Thank you for the reply.  I changed the CSS and the old borders went away, but the code you suggested did not take.  I left it up since it is still functional, but without borders.  Any suggestions?

Awesome, this is looking good.  I think I have one more question.  It looks like the inner borders are doubled up (2x thickness). The outer edges are just right. Do you know how to get rid of this?  

BTW, your help is very clear!  Mucho kudos.
