The fins contain no water, the fins are merely the medium by which your heat is dissipated. I can assure you that the amount of damage you talk of is probably equal to a drop in performance caused by the dust collected on your entire radiator in a couple of hours. The fins themselves are flxible and are very easily squashed and a mere finger knock during packet will bend them. You can use a blunt knife or toothpick or similar to bring them into relative alignment.
