    This may sound stupid, but are you sure it is only when you reverse?

    I remember when i had a leak it only became apparent when i slowed down and reversed as:

    1. You can see clearly where you have just been.

    2. The g-forces seemed to push (possibly pull... I never got into physics much...) the coolant forward and out the crack which was fairly high on the radiator.

    Also, i remember when i overfilled it a couple of times it tended to overflow out the hole near the radiator cap. Again, this became obvious when the car stopped as the coolant moved around the tank, (and out the crack in the radiator or overflow hole) and you then see it when you reverse or get out of the car.

    Anyway, good luck. Your best bet is probably just to put it up on ramps and let it run. I would imagine the leak would become apparent pretty quickly.

    Possibly water pools in some panelling, then reversing runs it out the front?
