I agree, fix it now!  I do it something like:

Knock off all of the scale rust, if there are no through holes you can apply an etching primer, bondo if you wish, primer and paint and clear..

Something like that, you can, depending on your desired level of detail, put several layers of paint and several layers of clear.  Wet sanding to ensure a smoooth coat.
