Hi Andy on the bumpers I'd say OK, leave the factory primer on, but remove as much as possible. if your using 220, try even a 320 (I know it will take longer but it's worth it) that way you won't cut into the plastic and you can always block out the primer to get it straight. The rest of the car I would take down to bare metal and you can use a more aggressive media like 80 grit. In a case where the paint is peeling the integrity of the original primer is in question as well as the top coat (Material is 25 years old) I would without a doubt strip it all to bare metal.
