Cor Jasper, what a palaver eh, but you got there in the end!

I haven't read through everything here thoroughly yet but I did happen to see your question about the trem arm. If it hasn't already been resolved, (I'll read this again later) I'll take some photos of mine so you can see what it looks like.

Well done mate!

I got me a trem arm that fit.
I read a post a little bit down the board on what angles asf they´re supposed to have.

Have pulled a mod though.
I replaced the OEM MMK at the bridge.
At first i tried with a Tonerider generator i had laying around,but nah....seing the inherent physics of the Pantera that was over the top.
Then opted to install a Seymour Duncan JB.
Ie,a pup really biased for mahogony guitars, with which i´ve had good results before in various guitars that are not.For instance in a Vantage 795.
Yup.
That did the trick as far as i´m concerned,and what happend was that the guitar "opened up" for lack of better description.
In general though there´s nothing soft about a Pantera.
Tone of it is "cut through" no matter what which stands to reason seing the maple involved.

Which brings me to a subject i´ve written about on the other Uncle Mat board too.
Why is it that various MMK45s specificaly varies as much as they do from a tonal POW?
Now,that is just me and my OPINION,but i really fail to see where as for instance the halfrail of the Pantera is a duplicate of say the 45 in my 795 Vantage-them both clearly being marked MMK45.
I don´t get it as they in my opinion sound VERY different,and the mere fact of the rail ferrite of the Pantera would back that up no matter the DC resistance.

Sure.
We often measure DC resistance of a given pup,but that is not the entire answer.
