Sonicwall VLAN between offices

I currently have two office that are connected by a VPN through the Internet.  We now want to connect to each office by a fiber connection using port X2 and a VLAN between them.  Each office will continue to connect to the Internet through port X1 and have it's LAN on port X0.

Office 1 currently using a Sonicwall TZ210 and has an IP scheme of and Office 2 has a Sonicwall TZ215 and has an IP address scheme of  Both would like to continue using the same schemes.  

My question is how can I create this configuration using the two current devices and leaving the WAN and LAN connections intact.

Here is the high level:
Each soniceall needs an address object for the other routers lan, and for an ip to the other router you can use as a gateway. This gateway can be part of one of the lans or if you want the ability to control it better, it can be a new zone like a Dmz, basically it's just a way for the routers to reach each other instead of the vpn
then you add a route where any traffic to that object goes to the gateway object for the other router out the x2 interface.
Depending on the zone you chose for x2, you might have to add an allow firewall rule.
