Hey Guys,
I'm an electronic engineering student and my class has a group project to create an autonomous vehicle used in a race against other students. The Mechanical students have installed a Hydrogen cell which works in tandem with a lipo battery cell to power it. Our job is to make it drive un-assisted and race them in an endurance race. Part of the assignment is to present a sales model, budget constraints etc etc.

What I am looking for is a few mock sponsors. Or more to the point some decals / stickers to adorn it and make it look a little more the part. =D
In my report I intend to use such sponsorship as a potential way to pay for the expected cost of developing such a full scale product. This is all a hypothetical situation of course and at no point will i ask or expect money. All I want is stickers / decals for electronic related companies or products.   

The race is to the best of my knowledge recorded but I don't know where the video ends up or anything so I don't expect it to be of any real advertising benefit.
So yeah if you or your company have any smallish decals / stickers you would be willing to donate to this please feel free to post a reply below or send me a private message. I can send you a self addressed envelope etc.

For anyone interested specs:
Sensors are a standard of the shelf HC-SR04 Ultra sonic distance sensor. (Price was the driving factor here)
Arduino nanos hold the Micros (time permitted I will replace these with an Atmega 32 and remove nano)
SD card for datalogging
Nokia 5110 for display / interface
ESP8266 wifi module
ADXL345 Gyro
It will also have a ip camera to stream video.

It's still in prototype stage but image attached for interested parties.
I intend to re-paint and fill the unused holes I made in the body to bring it back to looking pretty.

Well, it won't be electronics related, but if you go to your local RC racetrack or shop, they might be able to hit you up with stickers that are to scale (1:10) and are actual big businesses the people outside of the electronics-world might know of.

They might even have a spare (unpainted) body for you, and the correct type of paints to use on a lexan body.

Cheers man, however the body is a custom design. It needs to be much more sturdy to hold the sensors etc. We already have non electronics stickers on it (the kit comes with decals). I was just hoping to get a more authentic feel to it.

Yup, those are the decals for a Tamiya TRF417 V5 kit.  Those stickers only advertise Tamiya. :)

I was thinking of a sticker-kit for something like this:
