Naw, don't worry about it. I appreciate your input. That's the thing, I can't prove anything except whatever my word is good for. Not that he can prove anything either as far as I'm concerned, unless he puts up a clear video of it leaking. I know that's moot anyway, for what you mention below about PayPal siding with buyers.

If he refuses then HE looks like he's being unreasonable to paypal.
Seems like a good idea here, assuming I can't use the "site rail holes" thing for something.

With that said we're just hearing your side of it I'd say before being able to give you a straight concrete answer we all have to know what was said in the PM's
Yeah, I have presented the facts as objectively and clearly as I can (granted, you know what side I take in this ). Really nothing more of note was said via PM's, as I've only exchanged a few with him to this point. In his last, he provided that picture I supplied above. The rest were mostly just us going back and forth (rather amicably) about clarifying the leak location, etc.
