As we had discussed separately but which I'm mentioning here for the
benefit of others, the top cell border color you're referring to
between items in a search result list is set by the accent_lighter2
variable in colors.tt2.

KCLS uses a fixed-width layout, unlike the stock TPac skin, but if you
want a layout that's based on a big, centered div, you can customize
opac/parts/base.tt2 to contain a wrapping div, e.g., change the bit
after the body element to look something like this:

<div id="all-wrapper" style="margin:auto; width:950px">
  [% content %]
  [% INCLUDE '/opac/parts/footer.tt2' %]

One thing to note is that a bit more would be needed to have this work
for all browers, including older versions of IE.  There are tutorials
[1] that explain why.

Finally, rather than changing base.tt2, you can accomplish this using
just CSS by setting margin: auto and a width for the top-level divs
immediately under the body element, including #header-wrap,
#gold-links-holder, the search form, #content-wrapper, and
