We have the instrument panel and much of the interior torn out, upgrading the avionics, and removing all of the old cruft from the years. Cleaning up the exterior, removing and replacing old or unused antennas, streamlining airflow, and replacing exterior lights with LEDs (tail light, top beacon, wingtip nav lights, wingtip strobes, and landing lights). On the belly of the aircraft there is a an older strobe (white). It works, but seldom use it, and it protrudes obnoxiously from what is otherwise a clean underbelly. It turns on and off with a breaker and works separately from the main topside beacon. Is this original equipment or something that is required? My preference would be to remove it altogether.
