Returning player - sold all my orange shell gear long ago (didn't have a clue)... just wondering if there are any FPs that fit the bill.... any help is appreciated!

None at all. The orange shell drops (both armour and weapons) that we used to get in flashpoints are no longer available.

(To be clear: I'm talking about the drops specific to the flashpoint, e.g. the Esseles Assault Cannon that I still have lurking in one of my cargo holds.)

That's sad to hear - guess EA figures it's easier to squeeze the player base via the CM and inflate the GTN prices...

Set bonus is now on the gear shell pieces instead of being on the armoring. If you're looking to get set bonus gear, those pieces now drop directly in various parts of the game content. Hammer Station (Veteran or Master Mode) is a popular FP to do over and over again for these set bonus gear drops.

The following sources have informational articles on gearing in 6.0 (Onslaught) of SWTOR: SWTORista, Vulkk, MMOBits

If you just want basic "orange" gear there is a vendor on the Fleet that sells lots of it. Nowadays, with the use of outfits, it doesn't matter what the orange gear looks like. While leveling, just fill the orange gear with appropriate 'green' mods from other fleet vendors.

The gear you get from flashpoints these days is mostly 'yellow' gear, that I think you may need to be level 75 to get (but I dunno). In particular, you'll want a yellow "bonus" set.
