    Edit:Is that better?
    EDIT 2 I replaced Gliscor with donphan. Shard-quake works as well as Fang-quake. Plus Rapid Spin Supprt. My own Rocks can help.

    Way better, thanks.

    Good thus far, a few things of note:

    - Scizor with Roost isn't bad, but with Choice Band it's practically useless since you get locked into Roost until you switch out. Life Orb would be a lot better for that set since it works well with Roost and Scizor's natural tanki-ness. Either that or keep the Band and drop Roost for Pursuit or something.

    - Blissey's fine.

    - Weavile's fine too, watch out for Stealth Rock and other entry hazards that may wreck your Sash though.

    - Gliscor again, seems OK overall, although he really doesn't need Toxic since he has very nice offensive power. Ice Fang in combination with Earthquake provides very good coverage, and Gliscor will find a lot more use out of Ice Fang than Toxic.

    - Infernape's OK, consider Overheat/Fire Blast over Flare Blitz as a possible option to knock down walls such as Skarmory, Forretress, Bronzong and Steelix. Flare Blitz is still very good though mind. Muscle Band may serve him better than Expert Belt here too, since the Belt is a bit situational and Infernape's coverage isn't insane like, say, Electivire's or Starmie's.

    - You forgot to list Salamence's item. Regardless, it's fine as well - consider a Fire-type attack over Roost for Salamence, since an "end-gamer" probably won't need to be doing anything besides attacking the opponent after setting up, and a Fire-type attack would grant your set 100% perfect coverage. Fire Fang is the best choice since Jolly cuts your Sp.Attack by 10%.

    Overall, your team is very good - one thing that could cause issues however is your lack of a Rapid Spin user combined with two Pokemon, one Sashed, who take 25% damage from Stealth Rock, on top of no-one in your team resisting the Rocks. Other than that, you have a very solid team that should take you very far.
