Absolute murder on the core. In fact I'm going to do some tomorrow, since I suck and rarely bother with all this core and bodyweight stuff.

Whoever said you need a days rest between core training is dead wrong. The tissue is the same kind as that which makes up your jaw and calves. It is neigh on impossible to overtrain your core. Besides that, if you are not doing a body builder work out then your core probably gets hit every day with compound work outs. TheNegation planks are brutal, try plank rollouts

At 7.2% BF your abs should show, hell I'm usually around 15 and can see them.

They show but i still want to cut them out more and it seems the only way for me to do that is build them bigger. I got the the point of being able to do crunches with 3 plates in my arms and one behind the head, so i have strength just not size :[

The abdominal muscles are just like any other muscle in the body. They muscle fibers tear and repair themselves. If you are working them everyday, when do they have time to repair? If you want to train properly, I would hit them 3-4 times a week. Oh.. and ANY muscle can be overtrained.. including your core.

I agree any muscle can be overtrained 100%, but very few reach the point where they overtrain. Depression starts to set in, people feel like shit in every way imaginable, its just not a continual feeling of being sore. There is a workout that was posted on t-nation where overtraining was the goal, full body 2x a day for 2 weeks, then you take one week of from everything. So I agree, but to actually over train a muscle unless you are like 60 years old or diabetic, you basically have to have that goal in mind. When I first started lifting I would train chest and biceps basically everyday for a week or two without taking a day off, still saw growth. Go ahead, try and overtrain your abs, you will find it very very hard to do. I hit mine everyday with weighted stuff and never gotten to point where depression sets in.
