Radio removed car doesnt start

My 53F100 street rod has a gm tilt clm and someone installed a radio under the dash connected to the GM wiring harness for that clm. I don’t use the radio so I took it out.

I simply cut the wires near the steering clm. Now the truck will not start.

Suggestions? Is there a quick fix to get it running so I can go to a proper shop?

Splice everthing back together.

OK, why in the world would you cut the wires? Wasn’t there a nice convenient plug on the back of the radio you could just unplug? I’m getting a headache just thinking about this.

Anyway, I’m going to guess that you are missing a ground that was somehow working through the radio chassis. Try to figure out which wire is supposed to be grounded and run it to a nearby bolt. Good luck.
