Filiform Corrosion - Live with it?

My '58 Overlander has some filiform on most of the panels. I can live with it, but is it something I should eliminate now before it gets worse?

Your thoughts?

Are you sure it is filiform? That only happens on aluminum that has been coated, and a '58 shouldn't have been coated.
Perhaps you have a different type of corrosion
