the name of the person who sold the part or the motor vehicle from which the part was obtained; and


the Texas certificate of inventory number or the federal taxpayer identification number of that person.


The department shall prescribe the form of the record required under Subsection (a) and shall make the form available to salvage vehicle dealers.


This section does not apply to:
