Text on film borders too dark

Hi all, new user of NLP here, loving it so far.

I’m running into some issues when scanning in my negs without borders via Silverfast. After doing the process as recommended and converting the image in Lightroom, the text on the film borders is too dark to be read. I’m trying to get it so the film stock, etc, can clearly be read in the borders after conversion (stereotypical, I know, but I like the look!).

Any ideas on how this can be done via NLP? All my attempts so far has left it too dark to be readable, so outside of selectively using the adjustment brush to lighten the text, I’m not sure how to fix it.
