Looking for advice on an Ork conversion

This is my current conversion project for my orks. My Ork clan is based off Deathskulls. This particular clan has recently defeated some Ultra Marines in battle, so naturally much of their plunder is going to be marine based gear.

My conversions have been going very smoothly until I hit this Battlewagon. When finished it will be run as a Battlewagon with a killkannon, a kannon and 2 rokkit launchas. It will have the ard case and grot riggers upgrades. Now my other conversions have ended up looking much more orky than this one. They look random and haphazard but still maintain enough of original vehicle to know where it originated.

For me this vehicle still looks to "neat" for lack of a better word. It looks very symmetric and not nearly as random as my other ork vehicles do. I still want it to be recognizable as a Land Raider, but it is just not quite ork'd up enough for me.

I still have some work to do on the front of the vehicle but I just can't move onto it because I am not happy with how it is looking up to this point, so I have set the whole thing aside to come back to at a later date.

So what I am looking for is some feedback on this model. Am I just losing my mind and the vehicle looks fine? Or do you all see the same thing I see?
I am looking for constructive feedback so please feel free to say whats on your mind. My feeling are not easily hurt.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to help me out.

I have a land raider battle wagon, I attached pieces of scrap to the top edge to make a 'fighting deck' on top for the ork crew to walk around on.

I know you might think that idea might be a problem with the killcannon on top, but i have one on mine as well, positioned towards the rear of the vehicle to give it some swivel capability.

I don't think that is a bad idea at all. I can see ork doing just that and I even can imagine the scene where a few ork get blown apart as the killkannon fires.

You could try adding on loads of random bits of armour (metal sheets). ='ard case. It would also be very orky
