    If you replaced the original icons it should be in:

    Applications > Right click on Final Cut Pro > Show Package Contents > Contents > Resources > AppIcon.icns

    The icon is stored in ‘<application>.app/Icon?’. It is hidden. To unhide it:
    Code:
    chflags nohidden <application>.app/Icon?
    Not sure what you can do with it, it seems to be an unknown format.

    I'm a bit unsure of what you're trying to achieve , I think you want to save a copy of the image you used as your icon. If that's the case, copy the image, the smaller one at the top left of the "get info" pane. Highlight it by clicking on it, then press Command+C. Next open preview. Than press Command+N. This will open the image in preview and you can save it.

    I did that before the image doesn't look like the custom one

    That's interesting, just tried it again and works for my custom icon.

    I'm not sure why it isn't working for you.

    Custom icons. Please remind me about this in 20 years time when I am enjoying my pension. Maybe I am bored enough by then and like to customise my icons as well.
