37 looks like Camcar Div of Textron, TapTite Products, Belvidere IL
45 maybe INFASCO, Quebec
38 looks like logo for Korea Bolt Ind. Co, LTD Seoul

As a start, get the part number from the 69 AIM, then go to AMK Products website and click on the pdf catalog button on the left side.  The very last section at the bottom of the chapters list has a cross ref for some of the fasteners, see if yours is listed under GM section, then go to that page of the pdf catalog for a description and pic.  There is also a section somewhere in the catalog that describes the codes for the different finishes.  Many of the parts houses get their fasteners from AMK.  Others may comment here, to include opinion on AMK correctness, but always best to begin searching on your own.  You can also try advanced searches here, up near the top of the page, using a few key words.

Some guesswork/SWAG-ing on head marking pics above:

D - possibly G.B. Dupont of Troy MI (with three radiating grade 5 hardness markings), entered into a L.P. with Kamax of Germany around 1974 and not sure if the D mark was dropped or retained afterwards

O - with six radiating grade 8 hardness marks?, possibly Alcoa Global Fasteners of La Puenta CA or more likely Ring Screw of Troy, MI

TR - Towne Robinson of Dearborn, MI.  Went out of business early 1990s.  I think AMK still supplies TR, maybe being reproduced today?

C w/ H inside - Cold Heading Co., Warren, MI

S inside circle - possibly Specials, Inc. of Westfield, MA, which would not fit the OH/MI/CA pattern of fastener suppliers

P - possibly Prestige Stamping, Warren MI

ER in circle - no idea

2 w/ SS below - no idea

C - no idea

= = - no idea, I don't think there would not be any metric fasteners on a 60s GM vehicle, US built

M underlined - Ingersoll/INFASCO of Ontario uses this, but I think always with a triangle. Unlikely.

rectangle - no idea

A - no idea

L inside G - no idea, maybe Great Lakes as I see they are an AMK supplier?

L and F - no idea

No idea, they also used an L8 and I believe L9, plus some other non "RB&W" head markings.  Some of the other fastener manufacturers also used several logos, maybe different divisions or plants. 
215  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fasteners and headmarkings on: January 24, 2012, 05:42:19 PM
That L5 head marking is a RB&W product, not sure what the D one is.
216  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Hood Catch & Plate Fasteners on: January 20, 2012, 06:15:05 PM
So the "f" looking mark is Ferndale Fasteners, Madison Hgts, MI and the RBW is RB&W Corp (now RB&W Manufacturing, after several changes of ownership) with plants in Ohio.  A few others I can recall is the CL (overlayed) which is Centerline Tool & Engineering Corp, the circle with a "lazy" S in it which is Semco Fastener, and a "lazy" S without a circle which is Semblex Corp.  These things remind me of cattle brands from the old western movies.

Must have been some sort of time-space anomaly, back to around 2005 or 2006.  That underhood shot has me doing face-palms.  
218  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 Vent Window on: January 18, 2012, 12:37:54 AM
Are you talking about the material between the vent window glass and the frame around the glass, which mounts the glass into the frame?  If so, see the bottom right item on this site illustration, auto glass setting tape:
http://www.classicparts.com/Vent-Glass/products/859/

Here's another source, I imagine any glass shop would also carry this:

IIRC, when taking off you want to gently pry from the bottom, using a somewhat wider tool to spread the pressure across the trim.  You can also place something under you pry tool to avoid paint damage.  Install is the opposite - hook the top edge over the lip first and align screw holes, then gently push down to snap it in.  I've seen some run a length of masking tape along the bottom to avoid chipping but personally I don't think it is necessary.  The aim is to first avoid any damage to the more visible top edge of the trim.
220  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What rare part would you like to see a top quality reproduction produced? on: January 06, 2012, 05:41:06 PM
The small end pieces for the top trim on a fold down seat, but I doubt there's much demand.  Also air cleaner housing decals with the correct part number for K19 or K24 equipped cars.
221  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Which head casting date is correct? on: January 04, 2012, 01:24:22 PM
Do you have the original block, or are you building a "date correct" engine?  You should be comparing the engine build date (stamped, and assuming it is not a fake/restamp) with the head casting dates.  Obviously the heads need to be cast earlier than when the engine was assembled.  This old thread and links found within may help, I think it has generally acceptable date spans:

Go to the top of the page, click on the Advanced Search term to the right of the Search: box, and run a search using something like firewall paint or underhood paint.  You'll get many threads like this one:

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1608.0

You'll find that the firewall blackout paint process was not an exact art.

Interesting. So only the early SS 350's had the "SS-350" Gas cap. A friend had one back in the 70's with that cap, so it must have been an early car.

Jimmy V.

Correct, also the center grille badge.  I'm not sure if it also carried over to the center cap on standard steering wheels.

I read somewhere the early SS's, (before BB's started in late Dec.) only had the SS Emblem front and rear.  They started the SS 350 Emblem sometime after the BB cars went into production.

You are correct Mike. HERE'S where you read it.

Quote
At this time, the only SS was the SS-350 model, and the badges on the car read "SS-350". When the SS-396 was introduced in January 1967, the badges were changed for all SS models to read "SS".

Ed, isn't what Mike asked totally opposite of actual 67 "SS 350" badging and thus incorrect? (early ones used it, once BBs introduced all the SS models used same "SS" fuel cap and grille emblem)

Did it have the SS 350 fuel cap?
