In the shipping settings, it was set to use the Quantity column as the number of packages, I updated this to 1 so that it will use one package for the entire order.
for the CSS, remember that total width is width = Padding.
the padding for the confirm div is 10px top, right, bottom, left, so the total width is being set to 820px, pull the width down to 780px so that the total with will be 800px.
