Sad to hear that he won't be able to keep up the inventory for the acid washes. I remember there being a green and purple one with dual rod uc kit. Someone must've picked it up.

Only things I see that fit your green brown are:

You can still get custom colors; just expect to wait for a long time.

Yes, Mike made the decision to discontinue colors a while ago and this has been the case for quite some time. You can order a Phantom, or any Phantom part in whatever color you want. If you do, you have to pay for the ano process AND wait for the ano shop he deals with to get around to doing the work. Even when Mike was stocking full ano colors I had to wait months if I wanted a custom color done. Mike is in a difficult situation because he wants to keep his parts affordable, but is at the mercy of a third party who prioritizes larger businesses before him.

An alternative option is to see if raw parts are available, and then source an ano shop on your own. I have heard good things about Caustic Customs.

Yup. I ordered from him back in middle of Oct 2016 and got mine around end of January. It's not as long, but that may just have been that his ano shop was not too busy I guess.

A couple of weeks ago I called and talked to Mike about getting some Purple parts and that just happened to be the same day he was sending out a batch for Purple. I haven't called this week but last week (3 weeks after the initial conversation) he had said the Anno shop still hadn't gotten to his stuff because "he's small potatoes" (words from Mike's mouth). I'm in no hurry because this is just another Phantom in my arsenal so if it take a couple more weeks I'll just have to wait, and that does not bother me one bit.
