Creating reference planes curved surfaces

Hi all,

 

I have a part of which currently the planes are skewed:

Ideally, I would want planes like this:

With my current model I have difficulties as it has a curved surface on the edge:

What would be a good way to go about this? I tried adding reference planes by first drawing lines on the edges of the part, but the planes are still skewed. The part is a scanned object so there are some curves in the part that make it difficult I think.
