(b) Salvage vehicle dealers, vehicle crusher, vehicle recycler, rebuilder, scrap metal recycler and salvage vehicle pool shall, in addition to their monthly sales report for used vehicles, if applicable, on or before the 20th 25th day of each month file a monthly report on a form prescribed and furnished by the division, listing all vehicles for which the major component part containing the vehicle identification number or engine number if manufactured prior to 1981, has been disposed of or sold. The certificate of title or transfer certificate for all vehicles listed must accompany the monthly report.

(c) Make available during regular business hours to any employee of the division or any member of law enforcement for the purpose of investigation or inspection, all records concerning vehicles purchased, sold or exchanged during the preceding 12 months, including certificates of title on all vehicles owned by the dealership, except those titles surrendered pursuant to subsection (b).
