Looks good. To answer your radiator fin question I wouldn't worry about it to much. While it is possible to install a fan and not damage any fins, it is a pain. Ive gotten pretty good at it as my neon is on it's 6th radiator.

Based on personal experience Ive had to JB Weld damn near 1/3 of a radiator to get back on the road after hitting a racoon. I drove for 3 hours on the freeway with no fan and 2/3rds cooling capacity and it was fine. Ive also driven a neon for a month with a radiator that had about 3/4 of the fins missing. It was fine as well. So a few bent fins is no big deal.
