I remember running into the issue of warped bitmaps before when editing gearbox graphics for the GT3 (they look like if the vertical axis of the image was rotated sideways, isn't it?). I can't recall exactly what happened but if I remember correctly it was something about image dimensions (try making the affected bitmaps one pixel wider (or narrower, or shorter, or taller) so they have an even total number of pixels). As for the failure to load the car, it happened because you can't delete ins1 and ins3, as they are always loaded when the steering wheel is turned (inm1 and inm3 might not be obligatory, but chances are you'll need them for the design). You'll probably change your mind about deleting them anyway, as they make the steering wheel motion look quite a lot better when properly set (unless your kart has no meters which are covered by the steering wheel, of course).

Looking at Stressed source code shows that Dstien made it so the values are automatically set to 01, 02, 04 and 08 on importing a pic (probably because he didn't know exactly what to do with the values either ). As for the non-transparent gnab, probably you can solve it by opening it on Photoshop/GIMP/etc. and using the "Color to Alpha" option to make the "background" transparent before importing it back (the alpha mask information is lost when exporting a picture).
