Mod a radiator ? Cost

I got a old CJ5 I am putting in a mustang radiator. The dimensions are very close, but the bottom outlet is straight, and I need it to turn 90 degrees. I have very little room for a elbow adapter.. only 2". Also the outlet is 1.75" and my water pump is 1.5". So I am thinking of looking into taking this rad to a shop and having them modify it.. that way I can use the stock radiator hose.

What I got is a brand new 66 mustang radiator that has brass/copper core and tanks. So, its not a corroded radiator or anything.. any idea how much it'd cost me to get it modified, or how much it should cost ?
