Actually I'd heat up the tabs to 700-900 deg F and then bend them when cool. That should put them back into a dead soft/T-0 condition. Real easy to straighten. Then I'd heat them back up and quench them in a tub of hot water. This will restore the solution part of the heat treat and time will restore the age.

Just a dumb Al foundry engineer.
