Damaged rush seat chairs

I hadn’t intended on another project, but a local restaurant had thrown these damaged chairs out and I just had to have them. I saw one chair and a couple weeks later another so now I check in often to see if there are any discards. The frames are intact, just the rush seats are damaged. Obviously I have no idea how to weave a rush chair, nor do I know the level of difficulty it will take to restore them, so if I end up getting frustrated, they might end up holding stacks of books. This is definitely a summer project when the rising temperatures keeps one indoors.
