how do you remove luan from fiberglass panel?

Removed back panel from slide out to replace luan, some of luan was wet and coming apart. Removed rotted luan but thin piece remained glued to fiberglass, what is best way to remove this and clean fibervlass for regluing?

I guess you could try a chisel, used with great care.

I would use a very sharp "floor" chisel (about 2 inches wide) and try to get it as flat as possible to the glass.
Wiggle it side to side to "slice" the Luan off.
GO SLOW. make many passes.
If you rush the job you will gouge into the plastic.
Once you have most of it off lightly sand the remaining wood away.

Take your time. There is no "fast" way to do it that I am aware of without making a mess.
