Nice paint job! :applause:
I see you're in southern Cal, already got the salvage hive home on your new stand, in what looks like a garden area, a picture is worth a lot of typing!
The interior of that hive is probably going to look a lot better than the neglected exterior. If it's a strong hive, (new beekeepers seem to not be real good at judging that because all those bees look scary!) then I'd bee prone to simply move the frames from the old super into the new super and place in the same location using a proper bottom board. Don't shuffle the frames around, they've got everything where they want it. Let the bees adapt to their new home.
Next step would be to worry about splitting and getting them onto better comb. After the adrenaline dies down. :D
