I am sure the seller would have been willing to sort it out if he wanted to keep his 100% feedback rating.

Did you leave your feedback for this transaction?

Buying second hand is always a risk.

Agree 100%.. If called to prove that your pictures are of the reel from the seller would you be able to support that assertion?

Its better to put such a reel back in the box it arrived in and negotiate settlement with seller in writing via contact seller tab in ebay. Ebay then have all written evidence to hand on their system.

In this case I fear the horse has bolted however, its still worth confronting the seller with your pics (via ebay) and negotiating a fix.........but get responses via ebay....even if he does not answer, that is a response.

Good luck.

Go to the Big Green Shed and buy some of this stuff:

I have been using it for a lot of things as a clear coat, seems pretty durable. Latest task has been as a UV resistant coating after buffing out the yellowing on headlights. Just make sure that you use only light coats as the difference between a really nice looking coat and a run is about 2 molecules of paint. That is how I became confident as to the durability, it is a beeeatch to sand back to recoat!
cheers

This could have happened even locally TBH.

Cautionary tale. Most guys would've used it straight out of the box and disaster would've ensued - if I didnt do a full strip yeh you could just imagine the irreversible damage to main and critical parts and the future cost.
