Not sure that you can. The uncovered paint has been exposed to the sun, rain, dirt. etc. and is now a different color than the paint that was under the chrome.

I'm going to move this thread the the Detailing Forum, where you might have more luck getting an answer.

When I took my emblems off to paint them, I had the same thing. I used some Naptha to get most of the glue and grime off and then some Meguiar's no. 2 cleaner wax to buff out the rest. It came right out. Mine is an '06 though, your '02 might have a little more fade than mine did. It is worth a shot.

You will have to do some serious compounding and oxidation removal to blend the paint back in. It can be done, but unless you have the tools or know-how, it's best left to a detailer.
