Question Removed sun visors from 560SL, messy electrical problem follows

I recently removed the sun visors from my '87 560SL after numerous mentions from passengers that their placement right in front of their forehead was troubling in the case of an accident.

I like the car better without them anyway.

BUT removing them required me to snip a wire that connected directly to the visor. There was no way I could see to remove it without going dangerously far up the electrical chain... or so I thought.

Now my stereo no longer works, nor the overhead lights. It seems like maybe this is a Christmas Lights kind of effect where one severed connection throws off the equilibrium of the system??

Any suggestions on easy repair, other than just putting back those head-scalping sun visors and splicing the wire back together...?
