Default Radiator fin straightener

Hey all -

Some of the 'fins' on my radiator are smashed, like it got a knee or something pushed into it. It covers about 20-25% of one corner (lower left), which I gotta think is restricting airflow. Just wondering if there is a tool to straighten them out.

Thanks
Matt

Yes, walk into NAPA and ask for one. They have them.
