Chassis/Vin number Rust CVRT or NCT

    I've just come back from a CVRT test to a failure due to unreadable chassis number, the chassis number is punched into the wheel well behind the wheel (seems like a daft place to put it) but due to some surface rust it's become very hard to read.

    I'm sending it to a mechanic to fix some minor suspension issues so he'll try and clean it up but worst case scenario is that it's still not fully legible.

    Has anyone any ideas of any way to fix or way around the CVRT if it's still unreadable after it's cleaned. Any help would be much appreciated as I'm just having nightmares of having to scrap it but think that it must be common place in chassis numbers on wheel arches.
