need help with shower/tub surround prep
 
1 Attachment(s)

Hi again, well i bought a 3 pc. surround today from Home Depot, nice one for $209. I started taking everything down, my shower door, fixtures, when i tried to take down my soap dish (the kind that is recessed in the tile) i noticed a lot of very loose tile. So i said no biggie i will take down the loose ones and just re mud them up. The bottom tile were there when i bought the house over 10 yrs. ago, and the top tiles (gray) i just put up about 3 yrs. ago.
As you can see in the pic. i had to remove a lot of the old tile. They were all loose and came off the wall really easy. I didn't think it was a good idea to put a surround over the loose tile.
Now i have a little problem as you can see. All the tile still on the walls are in good shape, solid. Underneath the tile is cement board i might add.
My question is can i buy some sort of 1/4 " board and just cut and glue or screw??? to the cement board to make a flat surface. Now i am sure the water was coming from the tile, it was in bad shape. Any suggestions???
