Multi-directional extrude from surface loft

Hi All, I've been struggling with this problem for a while and can't seem to find analogous situations on the message boards...


I've made a solid part from a surface loft, and would like to make a cool design by extruding the sketch that I've made on its surface. I've managed to use a surface extrude, but unfortunately it is pointing in the direction of a line I made... I need the entire surface extrude to come out perpendicular to the face of the original surface loft. Is there a way to do this?


I made it this way to start, but ultimately I want the surface extrude to be effectively mirrored to the other side as well. I basically want a dual-layered, symmetrical design (one layer popping out from the other).


Is this even possible in solidworks?


Any help is much appreciated!
