Help!!! My UV's lo-pro is pitting.

I recently discovered that my lo-pro is pitting near the saddles. It's crome finish is starting to peel off a little. Is there anything I can do to stop this. I am worried that it will spread to the whole bridge. I play the guitar everyday and when it's not in use it's left on my stand. I stay in Singapore so could it be the weather??? Hope somebody can help me.

Thanks a lot!!!

I would make sure you wipe it clean and dry after use and store it sometimes in a case which has those little bags of dessicant.


ps eventually you will have to replace the trem, I have on my '92 Jem
