Build iso with custom timezone

Hello, as the title says, I have been trying to build an image with a custom default timezone, among other things**, before installation.

What I’ve tried so far:
. copied localtime symlink into /live-overlay/etc/ > failure*
. copied timeszone file that symlink points to into /live-overlay/etc/ and renamed it to localtime > failure*
. copied localtime symlink from live image after changing timezone into /live-overlay/etc/ > failure*

The desktop I am using for my custom iso is kde plasma, if that matters, I’m not sure if it does.
I am out of ideas. Any help is appreciated.

*by failure, I mean the timezone being set to UTC(the default) when booting into the newly created images.
**I was able to successfully add wallpapers and change packages thanks to the wiki.

Maybe you need to run hwclock?

Thank you for trying to help me, but it did not work.

What I am trying to do is to have a Manjaro iso image pre-configured with my favorite software, wallpaper, and timezone, so that I can quickly test software and scripts without touching my main system.
If it can not be done(the timezone part), I am willing to accept that fact, and keep changing it manually. All I wanted was convenience.

Once more, even tho your solution did not work, I appreciate that you tried to help me, and for that I am grateful.
