Need advice for silicone to diamond upgrades

Hi all, I have a HP B12 combo unit and a B26 40" belt sander. The combo unit has 5 wheels, expando, 2 grinders, a buffer and a end face plate. The belt sander also has a 10" buffing wheel.

For sure I want to replace the two grinding wheels with diamond wheels, probably 80 and 220. I don't really mind compounds and belts for the rest as I mainly want to finish up the big grinding stages.

Just curious if anyone might have suggestions to optimize the use of both machines and diamond-silicone preferences?

I'm also from the Northeast area, waiting on some cutting oil so I can slab up some colorful glacial material i've been collecting for years. I have a HP 18" saw btw, just received a new hood for it. It's 1 owner and is in really good shape. The original hood was the plexiglass. It was cracked but had been repaired, I just wanted to put a metal hood on it. I have it out on the bench waiting for it to warm up I am going to paint the outside of it gold hammertone.
