    I tried to close explorer, restarted it, restarted windows, none of that worked :/
    But i fixed it.
    My icon works now :)

    The issue was that
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\C\DefaultIcon
    became damaged or ignored somehow, no idea why but when i deleted \DriveIcons\C\DefaultIcon and readded it, windows accepted my custom icon.

    Thanks for all the help Shawn :)
    10/10 :)

    Great news. Gotta love the quirks.
