That's twice in a week I've had reason to purchase a torch.
Torch??? As stated above, use vice grips to bend the lip toward the engine down. Generally, that's what the factory did for the 4-row radiators. Also, drill the rivets and replace them with small bolts of your choosing as stated above. I used flat head 1/4" stove bolts as short as I could go with the heads up.
