wiring

Still trying to finish the dash wiring before the snow flies. got home about 6 last night after work and by 7 it was dark. that's what I get for living in Maine. Managed to wire the column and also managed to short something out at the same time. Key was off but battery was connected, now none of my gauges work. Car still starts and lights work, checked all the fuses none blown. Have no clue what I did.

hurry up and f up

If you shorted something and no fuses are blown you better find out what shorted and make the repair.
How are you checking the fuses? Visual is no good use a meter or a test light.
Possibly the fusible link or main fuse is blown.
Possibly a bad connection somewhere.
Check for 12 volts to the gauges.
