Facebook Go Custom Menu Icons | Forum

I'm running the Classifieds and Extended Events plugins with the Facebook Go theme.  I'm trying to figure out how to add icons next to the new plugin items in the menu.  I notice that for each menu item, the following css references the icon image:

.ow_main_menu .forum_forum {
background: url(images/main_forum.png)no-repeat  10pxcenter;
.ow_main_menu .forum_forum:hover,
.ow_main_menu .forum_forum.active {
background-image: url(images/main_forum.png)no-repeat  10pxcenter;

I've tried recreating this css for the classes associated with the new plugin menu items but the image is not showing up.  Currently it is inheriting a main_feault.png image which doesn't even exist.

Are there other changes I need to make to specific files?  Of note, I'm making css changes in the admin panel (not text editor to base.css); the image is definitely in the right theme image directory (in both ow_themes and ow_static); I have refreshed the browser a dozen times.

Any advice appreciated.
