Need your thoughts for an antenna. Have a diamond 400 nmo mount in place on hood. Ordered a Laird B4505c. Which is lost in shipping. I have a Diamond NR770HBNnmo mounted on opposite side of hood for 2m/70cm. Will the Diamond work for the GMRS as well while I am waiting for the Laird to find me? If the Laird can't find me, should I just go with another matching Diamond, tuned for GMRS. I think it would look more symmetrical if it did.

Your thought and opinion, please.

Probably not.. The top end of the 70cm ham band is 450 mHz. GMRS starts at 462 mHz. That's quite a difference in frequency.

You could check it with an SWR meter between your GMRS radio and the antenna, but as I say, I doubt it would work.
