How do you get that rich red color and maintain the light stem and trim?

My garage is almost ready to start my kit and the questions just keep bouncing around my head.

RE: petrel

I used Behlen's Solar-Lux "Cordovan Mahogany" stain. I first stripped up and sanded the deck and hull. I then stained and glassed the outside of both.  With one layer of glass on the outside of the hull I added a very thin light colored strip along the top edge of the sheer. I just taped it in place with masking tape. I then proceeded to glassing the inside. After I taped the inside seam, I went back and added a second layer of glass to the outside of the hull, overlapping the sheer by about 1 inch onto the deck.
