What does the info on this sticker mean?

I'm doing my spring cleaning on the Orient Express, and decided to take the rear bumper cover off and get it resprayed because of the rock chips on it.


I found this sticker on the car, and am trying to decode it.


I know that this sticker is applied right after the car gets its zinc primer and is pretty much its birth certificate. Some things are obvious, like my car was began on January 17th, 2002, and the paint is 8A3 (Orient Red), but what of the other info? None of the numbers correlate to the VIN or the engine number. The number 1624897 seems to be the body number? Ideas anyone?

this is massively left of centre for a answer. I noticed on some of the pics from the factory the same sticker. Could it be that the robotic equipment scans the bar code to determine the type of vehicle it is hence allowing the correct spot welds to be placed on that vehicle.

Like I said I could be totally wrong....... :drive:
