I would leave like it is. You can always repaint it but never get it back to original. There are a number of ways to save the original patina . Eastwood sells a patina preserver some use the thick Thompson water sealer .

Only issue with any water sealer is they contain poly carbonate and silicone based additives, once it's on you will have an extremely bad time ever getting past future paint issues even blasting to bare metal..

You are correct the silicone would be a problem showing up as fish eyes on a repaint. I have never used the water sealer but have known some that have used it but have not repainted . A good wax and grease remover may help if done correctly .

Any place where there is rust or bare metal it actually gets into the "pores" of the metal, I had a 37 Ford body someone put Thompson's Water Seal on It was Prep Sol'd ,sanded,  Metal Prepped ,sealed , primed and painted and had major issues. Had the body media blasted and prepped it and had less issues but still issues. Ended up taking in to Redi Strip and had it tanked and the paint issues were gone.
