Cool Luan between fiberglass wall and frame in over cab rebuild

I am putting my over cab back together after ridding it of wood rot. It had luan between the frame and the fiberglass skin. Do I have to replace that? And if the answer is yes, can you tell me what the purpose of it is? I like to know how things work! Thanks-

I believe the main reason for the luan being there, is to act as a foundation or base for the fiberglass skin. Once you put the proper glue on the luan, that fiberglass isn't going anywhere. The fiberglass has to be put on exactly right, since you can't move it, once it contacts that glue.
